Your aloe might be "sunburned". My aloe plants seem very intolerant of strong light and are happy getting little to no direct sunlight each day. Sometimes I've put them in an eastern or southern window, and they start losing their healthy green color like yours. But if I move them to a spot with plenty of indirect light, they green right up within a week or so.

Good luck!
