Good day,

the calipers are self-adjusting,
the caliper may be sticking on the
guide pin or the pistons may be
sticky. The guide pin is what helps
the pads center themselves on the disc.

I suggest getting some
new pads and if that doesn't
help you will need to clean the
caliper out and replace the piston seals.

The whole brake system may need flushing
as moisture gets in after a few years.
The master cylinder relief holes
could be clogged as well.
Master cylinder is the part holding the brake fluid.
