Brakes

This issue is new to me, so i did what most would do and searched. I got nothing back so here I am.

When I apply the brake pedal I guess you can say it feels soft, but I have been told it may be time for a pad replacement. The trucks only got 29K miles on it. Is it the pads?

When I say its soft I mean it takes more of an angle on the pedal to make the truck stop than it use to. Any advice or tips is helpful.

Thanks.

Would that cause the issue? So all i'd need to do is bleed the brakes?

You should also check your brake fluid level because if your brake pads are low more fluid would be used to help those low or worn pads stop the wheels from turning.
