      My brake pedal seems to spring back after I let off of it it kind of sounds like a compressor cylinder popping back into place, is there something I should be concerned about????

      Have never experienced this myself but it seems to me that you are having issues with the vacuum assist booster.

      Also could it be because of a warped rotor

      I have never had a warped rotor cause direct feeling to the brake pedal. Only noise or vibrations in the vicinity of the problem rotor.

      I agree, check the brake booster, check the line from the Throttle body to the check valve at the booster as well. I have only seen a check valve fail one time on an old Monte Carlo, but it would be nice if it were that simple.
