Why are my leaves changing colour and dropping?

Your Pilea may be suffering from overwatering, nutrient deficiency, or an insect infestation. First of all: don't panic! Check the plant and the soil, if the soil is not soggy and there is no sign of insects you should fertilise the plants.

Why are there white spots on the underside of the leaves?

These are salt mineral deposits and will cause no harm to the plant.
