Rotor Has Different Colors (Rings)

Has anyone seen this on their rotors? Is this from pad glazing? Do I need to replace the pads/re-surface rotors?

I had the same color on one of the wheels of my Infiniti after new rotors and pads.
The shop removed and found the top of pad has slight tapered surface. It eventually worn and became flush. But again, mine was newly installed.

Happened to me when I installed new pads.
As Kohsin says, usually the new pads have uneven surface, and eventually they will become normal after you drive the car.
