PLEASE Help! Is this root rot???

  1. blankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankHi! I bought my plant tree two weeks ago at a local garden because she looked so healthy and strong. I’ve only watered it twice so far. I placed her about 15 feet away from a Southwest facing window and I’ve checked on her almost every day. I’ve cleaned her leaves and mist her like twice. Three days ago I noticed that some of her veins were turning purple. I started watching all your videos in YouTube and now I’m afraid that she’s developing root rot. Maybe early stages of root rot??? I’m not sure! because there’s no brown spots, just some tiny ones. Since I noticed these changes three days ago, I’ve been doing everything you described in one of your videos, I moved her closer to my south facing window for more sun exposure, I’ve been shaking her everyday, and I also made holes in the soil for better ariation. So far I think it looks the same, it hasn’t gotten worse. The only thing I’m unsure about is wether or not I should repot her because I’m not 100% sure that this is root rot and would prefer not to repot her honestly. I just bought her 2 weeks ago and I like the size of the pot she’s in. She also doesn’t appear root bound so I would prefer to keep her in her nursery pot. I haven’t inspected the roots yet. I’m about to do that today in preparation to potentially repotting her :/ . I decided to reach to you for some guidance first in hopes that I won’t have to repot her. The pictures I’m sharing I took this morning. The last time I watered it was last Saturday and I noticed the veins turning purple the following day. Thank you so much for your help!! I really hope to hear from you soon!
