My live rock has changed from purple to almost white. What am I doing wrong?

If this is the single bulb of no that came with the tank, then that is the problem. The purple corraline needs some more light.

I think if everything was fine until now then most likely your bulb just needed changing. Old bulbs can definitely be a cause of bleaching.
