I bought the plant two weeks ago and it turns out like this. I asked the seller three days ago, but she said it's normal. The 'mold' spreads from one leaf to another. I worry about it.

Give this link a look. I think what the plant has is called powdery mildew. This link should help you.

When I went back to the seller, her plants showed similar symptoms.
Thanks for your help!

You are very welcome. Hope your plant recovers quickly. It is such a pretty Butterfly Wing.
