Pad wear will mean the caliper pistons will be extended further out. As a result, the fluid level will look 'low'. Change the pads and be sure to check the rear brakes as well. They take longer to wear, but check em for pad thickness.

If you have drums, be sure that they are in proper adjustment. When you do the front, check for grooves and wear on the rotors as well. Once the front disc pads are replaced (and possibly the rotors too) AND you've checked, replaced, and/or adjusted the rear, THEN top off the fluid with a FRESH bottle of brake fluid, not one that has been opened and sitting in your garage.
