Welcome to the forums q!
Probably type N mortar with white sand. Type N is what is normally used with brick.
Color matching mortar takes some skill a long with some trial and error.

After discussing the issue with a contractor, he suggested that I should apply mortar sealant b/c the new mortar will crack in the near future.

However, I can only find gray color mortar sealant in local home depot.

Does anyone know where I can find an almond colored mortar sealant?

Thank you

I have seen mortar sealants and I've seen caulks that say they are mortar sealants. The caulks are colored but the true sealants are clear. I suppose you could try tinting a sealant but I'd be afraid of how it might fade unevenly over time.
