@FestalBalsam can you take another pic that one is a bit blurry please and and you. What kind of plant is it? I think I know but I want to be sure.
Looks like a calathea! Maybe treat for pests first! Any other leaves with spots?
@FestalBalsam it looks like aphids.

To make a vinegar solution, combine white vinegar with water in a ratio of 1:3. Spray the infested plants with this vinegar natural aphid treatment, including the undersides of leaves and stems where Aphids like to hide. After a week, repeat this vinegar natural aphid spray to eradicate all traces of the insects.

You can always use premixed Neem oil too.

Check other parts of your calathea as well to make sure none are hiding.
Yes it's calathia
Should I remove the leaves with such spots
@FestalBalsam I would leave them on. They still will provide energy for the plant. Especially if recovery from pests. But for cosmetic reasons you can remove them. οΏΌ
