how long on average should a set of front discs and pads last on a new car (06) ....

its a renault clio new model and we noticed a slight noise under heavy braking....the discs look quite worn and theres definate grooves on the disc, the pads however are about half way down and have about 7-10mm of good material left...its done about 15,000 miles on the isle of wight so no heavy braking...

any thoughts...
