I would recommend bringing the vehicle in to have the brake system inspected. If you have to "pump" the pedal to get brakes, chances are this is not a rotor/pad issue. It sounds more like a break booster or master cylinder problem. It wouldn't hurt to check the brake fluid level as it may be low, but if it is, it is being lost somewhere (calipers, or a fitting) and would still need to be looked over to find out the issue.
