Hi Succulent, and Welcome! to ATP.

It looks like it might be having trouble with to much water. But lets call in @tarev and see what she says.
Also, what growing zone are you in? And what is your weather like this time of year?
Is this plant indoors, or outside?

Thank you for the reply! My succulent is indoors, and I am in the North Texas area. It has been rainy the past few weeks, but it hasn't gotten any water. Thanks!

Hi Succulent, reading your partial answer and looking again on the photo, it seems the wet stuff on the leaves looks sticky..seems to be honeydew. It is possible some critters are feeding on your plant like mealy bugs etc. They usually suck the plant juices and secrete honeydew in the process. You can spray some insectidical soap on it.
