If the leaves are turning yellow but you don't see any spots, it could be that they are simply the oldest leaves and are being shed by the plant (it's natural) or it may be a signal that you are overwatering. I'd carefully watch the plant. If you see spots, a fungal disease is trying to establish itself; if more leaves turn yellow, you're overwatering. Best wishes with your rose!
