Those bolts will remove the caliper. From the way it looks there may be a small pocket of air you can't get out with the caliper mounted. If you can remove the caliper and hold it so the bleed port is at it's highest, you may get all the air out. that will give you a much firmer pedal. The little dark circles on the rotor look very strange to me. Are they smooth? They look like the pattern of the rivets that hold the friction material to the backing plate, but there are to many of them. Some times it a car sits for a long time you get those but not as many. You may need to replace the shoes if the moly grease has soaked into them.
