I can’t tell if this is pest damage or sunburn or what. It’s little circular brown spots on the leaf. Mainly only the lowest one. Stem is healthy with new buds growing.
I try and keep it in indirect light, but might it still be getting too much??

I'm not certain what caused those spots, but the location of damage on a plant is important. If this is the oldest leaf, it will probably be the next leaf to dry up or fall. As long as you get new growth to replace older leaves, this shouldn't be a problem.

Experiment with light levels if you think it is getting too much or not enough, but Angelwing Begonia often do best in bright, indirect light or filtered sunlight.

It looks like some kind of physical damage from being bumped. Since it's an old leaf and the newer ones are fine, you can remove it and stop worrying about it.
