sounds like u got a busted brake line, if all u did was change pads then no u shouldn't have to bleed anything

park it on concrete or blacktop and pump the pedal a few times, look underneath and see if u see a puddle

if not look around the bleeder screws maybe ones came loose somehow

Sounds like you need to bleed the brakes. Do the fronts and drive it around. If it works then you're done.

You also could have air in the master cylinder. Bleed it after you bleed the lines.

bleed the lines and did you pump the brake pedal until it got stiff before you took it out?
