bent brake mount?

i recently purchased a new KHS Alite 500 w/ discs. unfotunately the discs have rubbed since the day i got it. i could usually fix it with small adjustments of the cables and calipers. the rear brake, however, has never operated properly. i noticed the pads were slightly crocked relative to the rotor. when i look at the mount with the caliper off, it looks crooked too. i only eyeballed it but that would explain the rubbage problem. i havent abused the bike or even ridden it much yet. any advice?

Take it to your LBS and get them to look at it.
