I have a problem when working on some B&W photos. Some look green, some look magenta. How come? Is this normal? Are you seeing the same as me?

Normally you should done the conversion to black and white first. After that you can do all other adjustments.   In your case it's possible that the color correction you have done are responsible for the color cast.

I edit the photos first, into the finished photo I will deliver, with all the color editing etc. 
Then, I simply click the black and white button. And do make some adjustments.

So do you suggest that I create a virtual copy, reset the settings and then make it black and white by clikcing B&W? 
Btw, I'm new to photo editing and lightroom.
