I can't see any form of bug on it but I can see some sooty colouring on some of the leaves. My roses have some of this on them but they arenot dying.
Apply some Pest oil to control the scale. You may need more than 1 spray to control this pest. I have attached the link to the pictures on the Yates Website to help identify the insect pest.
Lilly pilly plants can also get psyllids which is a small insect that caused the new leaves to dimple and bubble. This pest can be controlled using Confidor or Pest oil.
Lilly Pillies are rainforest plants and do require regular watering. Check the soil and see whether it is moist below the surface.
