Do these brake pads look worn out for inspection?

I would like to get a second opinion before going in, thanks!

First picture, the rotor looks pretty scored, just an observation.

Pads look ok to me. Like already noted, I would measure the disc in the first pic. That looks pretty worn. Do you know how many miles the disc is on the car?

I would say, plenty left on the pads. The disc from the picture also is normal. If the disc looks bad to your eye ( not easy to tell from the picture ) with grooves that match grooves in the pad then I would change both, run your fingers across both back and front to feel. So, make a note of the mileage so when you check again you can guesstimate when you need to replace. Note, always best to measure the disc thickness to ensure it’s in spec and have a look at the brake pipes checking for damage etc.

Careful about oils from the fingers on the Disk/Rotor, and pads, use brakeleen cleaner if touching,

I did change pads when that happened to me...

In my previous car, rotors were ok but I had to change the pads, so got the rotors turned and a set of Wagner QuickStop pads. In a few words, those pads are crap because those pads started causing the grooves in the rotor...

Long story short, as soon as the grooves were noticed in the rotors, I tried to correct it and sanded the surface for both the rotors and the pads a couple of times but issue kept coming Back after 200 miles or so. Then I decided to get a new set of pads (Raybestos EHT, the best purchase I made!) and sanded the rotors again before placing the New pads. Voila!!!! No mas problemas! (no more issues). Rotor surface kept so neat and uniform that it was amazing to see it!!!
