the scraping sound is normal. the pads are rubbing agains the rotors which have the old brake pad material on it. clean the rotors really well. the sound should go away after a while when the pads bed in.
as far as the brake lever feel, try bleeding the brakes for good measure. if nothing changes then you may have a bigger issue.
search for brake bleeding on this forum, there are a few write ups.
as far as cleaning the rotors, get some brake cleaner and a good scrubbing pad. just make sure not to scratch up the rotors.
