Apparently GM will do this 1 time only up to 39,000 kms, if it happens again, I get to replace the rotors. Fair enough as it is related to driving habits.....They also suggested if I do brake hard and have to stop for a period (like at a light), use the ebrake. Not trying to be jerky or anything, they were just offering suggestions.
What they mean by this is if you're doing a lot of hard braking and have to sit at a light for an extended time, use the park brake to hold the car there instead of the pedal to prevent warping the rotors.

It was the same principle on the old drum brakes on the rear. The worse thing in the world for people to do was a lot of hard braking, then park the car and put the e-brake on as it would warp the drums.

I would give it a try. Can't hurt.
