Iterating through columns for separate plots in Python

I am extremely new to coding, so I appreciate any help I can get. I have a large data file that I want to create multiple plots for where the first column is the x axis for all of them. The code would ideally then iterate through all the columns with each respectively being the new y axis. I included my code for the individual plots, but want to create a loop to do it for all the columns.

import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

X = df[:,0]
col_1= df[:,1]
plt.plot(X,col_1)
plt.show()

col_2= df[:,2]
plt.plot(X,col_2)
plt.show()

Pandas will iterate over all the columns for you. Simply place the x column in the index and then just make a call to plot with your dataframe. Pandas uses the index as the x-axis There is no need to directly use matplotlib. Here is some fake data with a plot:

df = pd.DataFrame(np.random.rand(10,5), columns=['x', 'y1', 'y2', 'y3', 'y4'])
df = df.sort_values('x')

          x        y1        y2        y3        y4
9  0.262202  0.417279  0.075722  0.547804  0.599150

7  0.793702  0.951807  0.938635  0.526010  0.098321

df.set_index('x').plot(subplots=True)
