The pad wear sensor resides on one side of the pad. Going in reverse probably orients the portion of the pad with the sensor a bit closer to the disc...this is a miniscule dimension, but regardless, you are due for replacement.

MB does not recommend "turning" for any reson other than slight abberations on fairly-new ones.

Most of us have a different "3-coin" rule...replace the rotors on the "third" brake pad replacement interval.

Relative to the cost of pads, the rotors are inexpensive.

Rotor replacement is a DIY...just make sure you use Loctite on the bolts when you reinstall...
