Do you have a Best Buy or B & H near you? A PC repair shop?
Apparently, Walmart and Target carry some, but I've never seen it in any of the ones near me.

One more question is it worth buying a new CPU something like i7-9700k? To play games on better fps
Not compatible with your current motherboard. Even knowing that, it's not going to be cheap to do. For example:
PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor ($384.99 @ B&H)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock 4 CPU Cooler ($69.90 @ B&H)
Motherboard: Asus TUF Z390-PRO GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($169.99 @ B&H)
Memory: GeIL EVO SPEAR 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($63.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $688.87
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

For that 9700K? Definitely. Intel stopped including stock coolers with their 'K' processors starting with the 6th generation, I think.
A budget cooler like the popular Hyper 212 isn't enough for it.

If you meant your current stock cooler though, then no. You just need some fresh thermal paste.
