Assuming its a hope disk, you pulled the lever with the wheel out :)

Pop the pads out and push the pistons back into the caliper using a large flat blade screwdriver, try to push in the middle of the pistons or youre likely to twist them making it harder to get back in.

Put it all back together and pump the lever a few times to get the pads back onto the disk (at first it will feel like the brake isnt working because you need to account for pad wear) and it should all be good.

In future dont pull the lever :D

like the other two have said....the pads have been pushed out....just gently lever them back.....if its really hard to do i normally pop the pads out,turn em round so i can press the screwdriver against the metal backing instead of the soft pad compound that'll dent quite easily

Never thought of turning the pads before :)

No good if youve put copeprslip on the back of your pads though >_<
