from the picture for one those disks are passed it the scoring or rusty lines with the metal between shows that the brakes arent making full contact either through the brakes needing a good clean and grese up or the disk possibly being warped the slight angle on the top of the pad is normal it is actually in contact with the disk if it were me personally ide have the caliper checked and greased up whilst havint the disks and pads replaced once home i would paint the calipers

That's picture looks worse than it is. I cleaned the car yesterday they look more silver now.

What does it look like after driving the car around the block and using the brakes a few times?

I'm struggling to see any gap from that picture to be honest.

I can see that towards the top of the pad it does appear to slope away but it looks like it could be a chamfer on the edge of the material?
Plenty of meat on those pads and the discs don't look too old either

if the disks cleaned up they are likely fine then the old ford pads i had in the shed do indeed have a chamfered edge top and bottom that looks decieving the actual pad still makes contact with the disk you cant see it because of that edge
