I know this is a year old, but for anybody else having this issue: it's usually one of two issues:

1. If it's just the pad next to the piston in the caliper wearing out, the caliper sliders are sticking and need to be replaced (which can get so bad that the whole carrier has to be swapped out for a new one as happened in my old 945 GLE.

2. If both pads in a caliper are wearing out incredibly fast, there's a good chance that's the soft line going to the caliper has collapsed and won't relieve much (if any) pressure when you take your foot off the brake. There you just replace the soft line and bleed all the brakes to get the inevitable air out of the system (pressure bleeder helps).
