these look like two different issues, to my eye -
in the second pic, the leaf does appear to have been nibbled by a critter, perhaps a caterpillar or maybe a beetle of some sort -
Catching the beastie in action would be the best way to properly identify it and know exactly how to target it effectively.

The leaf in the first pic however, may be showing signs of fig rust, which is not uncommon in humid climates -
Here is a link to an article by Ken Rudisill which may help you to determine if that is what is going on:
"Fig Rust- A Grin and Bare It Disease"
University of Florida/IFAS-Clay County Horticulture Faculty

Best of luck with your plant.
** edit to add:

Just found another site which may be a bit of help:
