Door doesn’t latch : HomeImprovement

The bathroom door in our newly built home used to latch, but I’m guessing due to some house settling, no longer does…. it opens when the fan is on… Obviously not ideal! I am thinking that I need to move the latch plate thing maybe an eighth of an inch away from the gym, so that the latch can engage in the hole. Is that the right approach here?

Second question, since there are already holes very nearby, will I need to do the usual tricks of filling the hole with toothpicks and wood glue, so that the new hole doesn’t just merge with the old hole?
