As long as the new growth looks healthy, your hibiscus plants are fine. They tend to lose their oldest leaves but then replace them with healthy new ones. If you don't like looking at the yellowing leaves you can pull them off the plant. That's what I do and they are quickly replaced with healthy new leaves.

Enjoy your hibiscus!
