your pseudobulbs look a bit shriveled so maybe your plant is under or over watered. How do the roots look?

That's a leaf that will eventually die back. It was bound to do something like that. I wouldn't worry about that leaf.

On most Oncs, when the new shoot gets to a certain size, it starts to produce a pseudobulb. After the pseudobulb forms, the old leaves surrounding the pseudobulb eventually die back. It's part of the natural cycle.
