    It is perfectly normal for your brakes to be to hot to touch.

    I strongly recommend that you get this looked at. You may have dragging front calipers, and this could lead to overheating and brake failure. A tech can tell visually. Overheating will cause glazing and discoloration of the rotors, and often sticking causes uneven wear on the pads.
