Sound like cheap brake pads that have glazed over to the point of being useless. Since you have to replace the pads soon anyway I'd say put the best pads you can buy in now to avoid a crash.
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
