Default Brake erosion

Hello all, I am on day 3 of having gotten this thing running and day 2 of comuting to work on it. Everything is going well, power and top end is low, but i'm sure that's a break in period thing. When I went out a moment ago to go to lunch I noticed a bunch of powder looking stuff around the back of the bike and then on the way to lunch, my brakes were crap. This explains why I'm having to adjust my brakes avery other day i guess. So my question is do they make brake pads that won't wear out as fast? Also, the breaks are supposed to be grabbing the rim and not the tire correct? Bike is a Scwinn Point Beach. Attaching a picture and thanks
