Did you just recently purchase it? If so, then the old growth is emergent growth and will continue to die off. The new submersed leaves look a little bit different too, hence the two types of leaves...

I just started keeping these fish too. They are super cool to watch. Sexing them in the store was tricky. The females have black stripe down their whole body and the males don't. That's the easiest...
