What kind of paint? Solid or Metallic?
Nason has a blotchy look till it flash's out completly.
Some metallic's will look "slightly" blotchy but will clear out fine.

make sure its dry and take some mineral spirits and squirt it on the surface and see if it goes away. the mineral spirits will emulate how it will look once cleared. most likely the blotchiness will stay. its covering poorly and will need more coats or be sprayed over a similar color base.

Yeah, if you're seeing light and dark spots with a solid color then the paint isn't covering completely. It needs more coats for complete coverage.
