It could be damage. I know when I got a banana plant a few weeks ago that two of the three leaves had been damaged in shipping and plants usually don't heal like animals do. They often put resources into growing a new leaf instead of any kind of repair. So as long as it still has other leaves you should be fine trimming the damaged one.
