After I changed my pads and took the car for a drive, I heard a clanking noise too. It was just the cap for driverside jack. If you took those plugs out make sure one of them hasn't come loose.
I changed my pads and rotors last weekend. I had grinding noises fro the first 50 miles and it took about 200 for them to fully brake in.
I'm not sure if the noise you are hearing is the pads or not. Is it a constant noise when the brakes are applied? Does the noise change in as you press the brakes down more or less?

How do the brakes feel? Is it more of a grinding noise, or does it sound like something is bouncing around?

Question, are the anti rattle springs in place and tight? Also on the squeal, did you add any antil squeal lubricant (I like the Orange stuff) to the backside of the pads or moly lube to the slider pins?

I found out what the clanking noise was everyone!
dumb ass me forgot to tighten the wheel bolts up on the front passenger wheel, and luckily i was about fed up with the noise so was going to take a look at the brakes - so started to undo the bolts with a ratchet when i realised that i could take them off with my bare hands!
