How do I fix this part of my door?

Do I need a new door lock plate? Or do I need to fill in that little space with wood filler? I don’t want to have to buy a new frame or get it fixed. I’d rather try to do it myself.

    Depends upon how secure you want it to be:  you could putty it up so it looks nice but wouldn't keep-out a cat . . . . . I would replace that side of the door frame and fasten into the wall with many long screws.
