Brake Shudder in new Giulietta

Hi everyone. I am the new proud owner of a new black Giulietta Distinctive (multiair).
I brought this car home 3 days ago and it sure gets a lot of attention. Love it!!!

I just wanted to ask one thing though to see if this problem might clear itself up. My car was actually built in July 2012 (nearly 2 years ago) and it has been a showroom car for quite a while. It came with a $7000 discount (I am in Australia). Unfortunately the brake rotors appear to have quite a lot of rust on them and I wonder if this is causing the brake shudder coming through to the steering wheel. Will this rust naturally wear away in time (I have covered 300 km so far with no improvement) or are the rotors warped?

It's not such a big deal just disappointing that the dealer let the car out with this. But has anyone experienced this?
