What’s wrong with my tomato plant? 😭

They have been doing really great up until this week! I bought some Sevin insect killer in case it’s pests, but I need help figuring out how to save my baby!! #TomatoPlant #help #sickplants

Could be several things. Here's a link to some common tomato problems.

But some of those leaves, particularly in the second picture, make me think you may have leaf miners (ants) behind the damage.
@UltraKoreanfir thank you!
@Greengrrrl you are very welcome 😁
It’s leaf miners. They normally don’t need any treatment unless they eat up all the leaves, which doesn’t usually happen. Your tomato will do best if planted in the ground (not a pot, unless you have to) and in all-day direct sun and frequent watering.
And also, plant marigolds around it. They get rid of a lot of tomato pests.
