Most auto parts stores have a paint section. And most of them have "Factory Matched" colors in little pens or quarts. See if you can find one that matches and try to fill in those paint chips.

That sucks, it appears your door has been sprayed before and they did not either sand primer, primer the door at all and just use sealer or did not let primer dry. Touching it up with a touch up paint is gonna be your best bet because if you were to start sanding this you are going to end up with a mess unless you are gonna do a repaint. If you need any suggestions PM me.
