There is nothing to adjust, a good flush with new brake fluid is about as much as you can do. Rear pads are very cheap for this bike though so a quick change for some fresh ones would help some too.

You can adjust height of the pedal but agree other than that no adjustment.  Just make sure the calliper is free to slide on its pins.  Probably needs taking off, clean & grease the pins otherwise it will wear the pads quickly

Just clicked on it, because it said rear brake.
I too, have a 2013.  about 28k km.  Just did a fluid flush a month ago.  Fluid was probably original, and my cycle has a checkered past.
Just last two days.... rear brake is seizing and getting hot.  I am certain no service has been done to the caliper, and it is dirty, and the pistons are sticking.
Caliper off and full cleaning and rebuild are happening next.  It is not complex.  A little dirty and nasty. Done it on a couple of older cycles.
