Red Spots on Peach Tree Leaves

I planted a peach tree a few weeks ago without any problems. It's about 2 years old. Within the past few days, I've noticed that some of the leaves are beginning to get red spots. It's not on all the leaves and the ones that have it only have a few spots. I've done some research and am not sure if it is due to copper toxicity (I use a copper fungicide but stopped when this problem emerged), Shot Hole, or lack of nitrogen. The plant needed to be fertilized, so hopefully the fertilizer I put down today will take care of the problem if it is due to a nitrogen deficiency.

Any help/guidance is much appreciated.

If it were mine, don't think I'd worry about those few spots. Regardless, be very careful about fertilizing a newly transplanted fruit tree in this hot weather. If it were mine, I would wait until fall to fertilize. Just too risky now in this heat, IMO.
