Need Help With my Monstera Plant - Brown Spots & Some Yellowing Leaves

I'm worried about my Monstera plant. I bought it about 1 or 2 months ago and it was doing great- but now all of a sudden some brown spots have shown up and some of the leaves at the base of the plant have started to yellow. I try to wait until the soil dries out to water it, but honestly, I haven't watered it in over a week and I just checked it and the soil it still soooo wet. I'm worried that maybe it's retaining too much water? The tag on the plant said it does well in low-light areas but now I'm wondering if that could be part of the problem too? It sits in a spot in our living room that does not get a lot of natural light (especially during the week when the blinds stay closed during the day).

Sorry this is so long winded but any advice y'all can give me would be very helpful!
