    Either way new pads clean the discs/ rim of wheel with nail varnish remover.

    Yes dont use oil, you can buy special cleaner on ebay for a couple of squid.
    I had this & found taking the disc pads out & giving them a good clean sorted the problem.

    Put the bike in the shed and buy a car.

    remove the brakes

    My bike was doing exactly the same last week, I'd only ridden it once and then cleaned it, I must have contaminated the pads, fitted a new set and now they are fine
