I always change the rotors when changing the pads. Most times they are rusty and the original pads bed into the rotor. Also for the cost, like $30 per rotor, it doesn't make sense to turn them down vs replacing. If you don't want vibrations and complications, replace both rotors and get a new pad set. Also pick up some silicon grease for the caliper pins.
