I recently bought a fiddle fig plant, I repotted it into fresh soil and have made sure the roots aren't sitting in water. I only water it when it feels dry 1 inch down into the soil.
All the other older leaves are perfectly green and healthy looking, so I don't understand why these new leaves, look this way. Look at the picture attached.

Please help, thanks!

It is not uncommon for new Ficus lyrata leaves to have that strang coloration when they first emerge. As long as it is healthy, it will gradually turn pale green and finally deep green.

You repotted so you will have to be very careful not to inadvertently over water.
