Why do my leaves have brown patches?

This could be as a result of overwatering or a lack of water. Check the soil before addressing the issue.

My plants leaves are turning red and discoloured, why has this happened?

This is likely to be as a result of mites. You should check the plants including the undersides of the leaves. Wash the plants leaves with a plain water or with a little washing up liquid mixed in to remove the mites.
