Uneve Brake pad wear on 2001 Malibu

I heard my brakes squealing the other day, so today I pulled the wheels and calipers to check it all out. When I pulled the driver side pads, the inside pad was slightly more worn than the outside pad, which I suppose is normal. When I pulled the passenger side pads, the inside pad was almost totally worn, while the outside pad looked brand new, it still had the grooves in it. I checked the caliper, it was not stuck and moved freely. Is there any reason that both inside pads wear more quickly than the outside? Or even that quick?

Oh , the pads and rotors were both installed 14,000 miles ago. They are Brembo smooth face rotors and Greenstuff Pads

BTW, I will be replacing the pads and turning the rotors hopefully this week.
