It could be the pads bedding in to the new discs or the pad material itself. Sometimes the make up of the pad can cause squeaking under light loading. Give it a few hundred miles to bed in and see if it improves.

The last set I replaced took 2/3 thousand miles to settle down and squeaked under light braking but stopped now.
