G'day Beginner04, Welcome to the forum.

Could it be that the thin nut around the jack has become loose? If so it's wise to tighten it without delay, as movement here can cause the wires to break off the lugs on the inside.

Maybe if the nut is tight and the jack still seems loose, the jack could have come apart on the inside. If you've not worked on this sort of stuff before you might be best advised to get a techo to look at it. Try your local shop and see what they say.

Keep in touch.

They all loosen up after a while. There should be a nut on the jack to tighten it again. Be careful not to over tighten and it's a good habit to get into checking nuts and screws as general maintainance. I go over the whole guitar whrn I change strings.
