Hi there ! It sounds like too much watering. Skip watering for three or four or more days, till the soil looks a bit more dry. The leaves turn a bit yellow sometimes with too much water, specially towards the bottom of the plant.

I would take the yellow leaves off, as they will likely die anyway.

If there is water sitting at the top of the pot, I'd dump the water out (tilt the pot).
