It's top layer is chipped off. Anyway to cover it up or repair it? Can I also know of this happened recently or old damage from this picture (not realistic obviously but asking anyway).

Glop some epoxy on it. For a less blatant but still visible repair, mix some marble dust (given the tile color) into the epoxy, or choose a white rather than clear epoxy and mix (but do not mix too well, for this pattern) some pigment into it (after throughly mixing the epoxy, first.)

Age can somewhat be inferred by how clean or dirty it is, as a chip will tend to collect dirt and be harder to clean than the surface of the floor.

The proper fix is to reach for your stash of spare tiles (problem if there isn't such a stash) and break out the remainder of this tile, then replace it. But you wanted easy...

  • +1, I use an almond colored epoxy appliance touch-up paint on my kitchen/dining room floor tiles, the chips are practically invisible. The chip seems to be relatively new, because the white porcelain around the edges would likely be discolored by mopping/floor cleaning over time. – Jimmy Fix-it Nov 26 '17 at 16:17
