It sounds like you did not harden off correctly or placed it in too sunny of a spot. What it has is sunscald – it is a little like a sunburn on a plant. If it was just not hardened off correctly, the problem will disappear and the plant will grow new undamaged leaves. If the location is too sunny for the plant, you may see it continue, and you will need to move the plant to a shadier location.
