yeah... you need to bleed your brakes. if you look on your fron't calipers, there's a little bolt with a hole in it on the back side. basically you need to depress the pedal, loosen the bolt till some fluid drains out, tighten the bolt back up, and then take your foot off the brake pedal. repeat a few times on each side and that should get any air out of the system that you might have sucked in when the piston fell out.
