Mine did the same thing. You just need to back off the caliper mounting bolts,squeeze the lever and retighten. No biggie.

Check caliper alignment and the rotor for true...
Does this happen only after taking on and off your wheel? Might be how you tighten your quick release up...
i try to take off the wheel and put it back and after that i ll adjust the mounting bolt..
i think maybe because the brake is new..and the brake pad is still thick ..thats why it touch the rotor...
