I bought a couple of lotuses recently and they sit in small pots (may be 2 inches in diameter).

Q1 -Do I need to take them out or shall I keep them in pots? I only have gravel in my tanks, max 2" deep and I use liquid fertilizer once a week.

Q2 - I had these lotuses for about 2 weeks now and I don't see any sign of growth. The only thing I noticed is that the one I placed in a tank with a softer water seems to changed leaves colour to more of pink, while the other one still has leaves that are dark purple. Is it the way it is supposed to be or one of two is doing worse than another?

you should take them out of the pots and plant thier roots in the gravel.

since each plant is in different water they will probably look different. for example, you could have the same species of plant and have it under diff. lighting conditions and thier leave shapes and color will be different.
