Default Rust on Brakes!

I have a 2005 C4S that is very low on miles since I travel alot for business. I recently had to leave my car outside (locked inside a secure gate). When I returned home from my latest trip (3 months) I noticed there is a slight layer of rust on the brake rotor! As you can imagine... the site of rust on my car is like nails on a chalk board. [:@] Will this layer of rust burn off from driving the car regularly? Any suggestions to remove this rust would be appreciated! Rust.... arggggggg! -D

It will burn off after your first trip around town. Nothing to worry about, and is very normal. They will be shiney as new after a short drive.
