You need to adjust the position of the caliper. Do you have any "feeler" gauges for setting the gaps on spark plugs?
Regardless, find a very thin piece of metal or a thick piece of paper. Wedge it between the brake pad and the rotor. Then squeeze the lever and strap a rubber band around it to keep it pulled.
Then loosen the bolts holding the caliper to the frame. Wiggle the caliper. Force it a bit. Make sure it's loose. Then retighten. This should shift the caliper in the direction away from where it rubs.
