    If you've just took the wheel off and had a look they should be tightish enough up against the disc. depends what you mean by really loose.
    is it still loose when you operate the foot pedal?

    the old ones were tight in, but didnt appear anything holding them in.

    When i slid the new ones in they seem really lose with nothing holding them in place if that makes sense

    there is usually a spring clip on the back of the inner pad that locates inside the piston, the outer pad on some variants has a spring clip hold down or an adhesive pad as mine did
