You can remove and replace that 'seat' --most use a long Allen wrench and simply unscrew----

If you have a plumbing supply house near by, you might get better advice and the right parts.---The Depot may have a few valve seats---but a supply house will be a better bet---Mike----

PS--rebuild the hot and cold while you are at it----and ask for a roll of 'valve stem packing' while you are at the store.
These two pics should show you what Mike is describing.
