Default Brown spots on leaves? Any ideas y?

Problem with my baby nana:
Last 2 leaves developed brownish\reddish spots on leaves. They only on the top side and are not visible on the bottom of the leaves.They don't seem to dry out - just are there and i'm wandering why?

Please tell me if its normal - have no idea what kind of banana it is - so it's hard to say if this is natural leave pattern for certain spiecies?? No idea...

Any help appreciated.

It looks like a Dwarf Cav just starting to develop its juvenile variegation - those spots will darken in to red and the leaves will become quite attractive. It's nothing to worry about.
