Yep. Mint leaves bruise easily. The bottom of the stems look good as far as I could tell through the glass and water. Clip off any leaves that don't look good. You might shorten some of the tops if the stems starts to shrivel.
Don't try to keep in water too long after roots begin to grow. Water roots are different from soil/air roots and they will suffer a set back when planted in soil.
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.
