If it's only light surface rust (which it undoubtably is) just let it go. It will wear off very quickly during your first, very noisy, brake application. Anything you could apply to keep the rust from occurring will do very bad things to your braking system. Take a look at car brake rotors after a heavy rain. You'll see every one of them with surface rust. It's not that big of a deal.
Alternatively, and for the sake of the rest of your bike, a simple cover would keep the majority of the moisture off the bike. Your brake rotors rusting should be the least of your concerns honestly.
