Hi there! It looks like you got some miners, digging into your leaves...I'm more than used to them! First, always remove affected leaves if it's possible (3-4 a day max). Secondly, find some neem oil, mix a teaspoon of neem oil with 1L of hot water, let the mix rest and get tepid, then use it as a foliar spray onto your plants at night. These little bugs hate neem oil, you'll see the invaders dying one by one ;-) Finally, you can try some products to protect your leaves against such invasions, I use BioBizz Leafcoat, which is basically a shield for your leaves. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!

Yep leaf miners. While annoying, they are not really dangerous, unless you have a real infestation. They are a kind of larvae of small fly. If you have just a few affected leaves, you can either pluck them or if you look closely on the underside of the affected leaves, pick them with a fingernail.
