Help!

Got my Swiss monstera a little over a week ago and there are brown/black spots, a couple yellowing leaves, and in general not looking all that healthy. It came in a self-watering pot. Disease? too much water? Still just adjusting? Any suggestions would be appreciated! #Monstera
4ft to light, indirect
6” pot with drainage

I'm not a fan of self-watering pots due to the high chance of root rot. Those black spots don't look like sunburn, more like its sick from sitting in water. If you can, repot in fresh soil in a pot with good drainage, rinse the roots, and pull them apart if root-bound
