There are some concerning markings on your plant.
I would first isolate the plant from other plants.
Check watering first; inconsistent watering and lack of humidity can cause leaf issues.
They can also be sensitive to salts in water so water with distilled water or let the water sit out on the counter for 48 hours before using.
This also could be leaf spot disease; either virus or bacteria.
These articles will help you address the issues.
