My mother had bought a beautiful cilantro plant and asked me to repot it for her. After about three weeks it now looks like this. Is it from lack of sun? They were next to an east facing window, along with her parsley which now looks like this. Is it best to just toss the cilantro now and start over? And how can I stop the parsley from doing the same?

Unfortunately, of all the available herbs, cilantro does not "transplant" well, if at all. You can keep it for awhile longer to see if it revives, but unlikely. Your Parsley should be okay. As soon as your microclimate allows, you should try and move them into a South position, perhaps outside.
