Although the color of the leaves, the stalks, and The Underneath of the leaves appear fine. However some critter is redecorating the leaves with holes, and there are fine, small white lines. Also is a tinge of black spot starting? Please please please help comma and thank you greatly ahead of time.

Most plants will have some foliar damage; it is the price they pay for being outdoors and part of the ecosytem. I don't see anything serious. You may have a few whiteflies. The average size is under 3mm. so they are tiny. Look on the undersides of leaves which is where many pests linger and feed. It looks like a leaf cutter bee has taken a few bites from leaves but this is not worrisome. The other random holes are so few that again, this is common in outdoor plants and not severe enough to affect plant health.
