If it is a slight drag; no problem. However, if the rotor is getting excessively hot, I believe you have a worn brake calipher. As your old brake pads wore the pad decreased in diameter. Hydraulic fluid ( with picks up moisture and causes rust internally)took up the space within the calipher. Now that you have installed new pads the piston in the calipher has been pushed back over a corroded calipher cylinder so resistance has occured and the brake will not fully release.
