I went to check my front brakes tonight and when I took off the caliper the pads stayed on the rotor... is that normal.
The pads and rotor look good but I thought it was a little strange that the pads were not attached to the caliper like on my rear brakes.
Also, the caliper was attached with two different size bolts???

As far as the 2 different sized bolts are you talking about the caliper, and the caliper bracket bolts?

The first part you have to take off... the caliper. It had two different size bolts.
