i think thats pretty normal. Mine are new as well and do the same for the first minute of driving. Of course im talking about between 5 degrees and 30 F.
also happens when they are wet. I wouldnt worry about it though, some pads/ rotors are noisier than others.

Pads with a lot of cold/initial bite (street pads) will groan when cold. Pads with high temp fade resistance (race compound) will squeal when cold.
