Plant that is starting to get brown spots?

Hey guys I recently perchased what I think is a Amazon Sword a little under a month ago It is my first live plant and I have it in my tank, planted in Gravel, I clean the Tank every friday and it seems to be doing great....... But I have noticed more recently that the plant has some brown spots....... One small spot was there when I bought it, but it seems to be getting a little bigger....... And I am wondering if that was a sign that I was doing somthing wrong? And Do I need to clip off the parts that are brown? And I apoligize for the gigantic images!

To me it looks like they are old leaves and they are dieing off, nothing to worry about just prune them off :)

Nutrient deficiency.

Don't touch the leaves until they turn completely brown. What you have is a root feeding plant. It's turning brown because it doesn't have enough nutrients.

Get some root tab type fertilizers and slip them underneath the plant.
