Most disk brakes have the slotted mounting holes that allow the caliper assembly to shift left or right a little to center itself over the rotor. Loosen these, squeeze the lever, re-tighten, then test again. Shimano's mechanical disc brakes have a second mechanism that uses allen keys as well to shift the pad position in the caliper assembly. Then adjust the cable tension by unscrewing the barrel adjuster on the brake lever.
