Pieces of Tile loose

Hello everyone, I have some rather loose tiles in my restroom. These are little tiles that are believed to be ceramic. I'm thinking about repairing, but would like the best way to do so, what would you suggest?

Clean off the backs of the tiles and the holes that they came out of so they lie flat. Use modified thinset to reseat them.

Now I have a question, why did they come loose? If there is a problem and it is not properly addressed they will come loose again along with other ones that are about to give way.

I went online looking for this thinset stuff you were talking about and I don't need no 50 lbs of it. I also want to get some at the cheapest price too. It's only a few tiles that need fixing.

Check your local home improvement store. They may carry small bags or even premixed thinset.
