Yep, sounds like you are attacking your instrument a little too much. Lighter strings or do not press down as much. You do need to get your finger TIPS conditioned to playing. Why finger tip, the tip takes up less room and you get crisp sounds from one note this way, i.e. your finger pad slopes over into part of two notes. Make sure it is your finger tip that is begging for a rest.
Thirty minutes a day right at first should be enough to get your fingers conditioned.
