loanAmount = Double.parseDouble(totalLoan);

interestLoan=JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter the Interest Rate of the Loan in decimal Form: ");
loanInterest = Double.parseDouble(interestLoan)/12;

termLoan=JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter the Term of the Loan: ");
loanTerm = Integer.parseInt(termLoan)*12;

// calculations
monthlyPayment = (loanAmount * loanInterest) / (1 - Math.pow(1 + loanInterest, -loanTerm));//Formula for Monthly Payments

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog wants to have a title too.
Add a title before JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE.

Like this:
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Your Monthly Payments Are" + decimalPlaces.format(monthlyPayment),"Your title",JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE );
