Your rotors could be out of round, you could be building up brake dust this is caused by cheap pads. Your rotors could possibly be sticking and not freely moving, You may want to try caliper lube..

Will I need to change the rotors also?

No you could have them cut...

I just did but the noise still exist. So I will apply the clipclient lube also and see the results.
