I'm a first time houseplant owner and I recently purchased a silver dollar jade plant. When I first got it home, I noticed that there were some brown spots or scabs on the bottom of a few of the leaves, and a few of the stems were weak. Now, they look like they are shriveling a bit. What does it need? Is it just sick or is it telling me something?

|The first two photos seems to be sunburn. While the last photo may be fungal issue.
Normally I will observe a bit more and just let it be if it does not spread. In time the plant will shed the leaves.
Does the container have drainage holes? It has to have drainage holes so excess water goes out. Allow the plant to dry between waterings, and provide as good light as you can. If you can, grow it outdoors in bright light area, but not too much direct sun.

|It will be easier to diagnose the problem if you post a photo that shows the entire plant, including its pot.
