My nectarine growing in a pot has had a great deal of flowers but I noticed now some leaves are twisted and tinged red. Could this be a pest of some sort?

Its a disease called peach leaf curl....nectarines same family.  It's caused by rain.  Plants are affected in early and mid spring and the leaves become blistered and red.  You need to cover your bush until summer.  Pick off those red leaves. Move into greenhouse or put parasol or similar over it if it is in a pot.
