Don't wanna lose this young fig tree

My patio's a mess and I wanted to make it a good place for spending the afternoon. Some time ago (about a week) I bought a sturdy and healthy looking fig tree from a local nursery. I went through and planted it right away, but found out that my soil had too much clay content. Anyways... several of leaves it has have started to turn somewhat yellow and I'm afraid that either the soil or the weather (living in an 8a zone) will manage to end my ever wanted fig tree... So my questions for you are: is my way of thinking OK or am I over reacting, and if I'm not, what should I do (I normally water it when deeper soil is dry enough) ??? Please help me...
