I have new tiles and know how to do that part, just don't know what to put down to fill void so it doesn't do it again

We've had similar trouble in an older school with ceramic tiles .
Last time I believe they used an epoxy cement patch and then replaced the tile . Seems to be holding up the best from what I can tell .
All the Best, Ed

I would remove the tile and inspect. Chances are that the installer dotted the tiles and there is a void there. If there is a void in the substrate, epoxy would be the best.
