You should first join all the paths /shapes by selecting them

enter image description here

hit spacebar search and search "join"

enter image description here

or press Ctrl + J

Once those are one shape, press Space and type in search "convert to"

enter image description here

Here you can see two options, select Convert to mesh

enter image description here

Once that is converted into mesh, go to Edit Mode, and start Filling paths..

enter image description here

Select two edges in two separate paths and hit F, they will be connected.

enter image description here

enter image description here

Now select one edge and keep pressing F

enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ For the last part the "Bridge Edge Loop" command would be even more fitting. $\endgroup$ – Leander Jun 8 at 19:02

You are dealing with a curve object. Curve objects are different than mehses. You cannot add faces to curves.

You can convert them to a mesh as stated on the other answser. but you can choose to keep them as curves.

To fill, just convert them to a 2d curve and select "both" as the Fill mode. enter image description here

If you need more concentric rings, just duplicate one of the rings and resize.

enter image description here

If you must convert to mesh, then press Alt C in edit Mode, select convert curve to mesh. Enter edit mode, select all vertices and do "bridge edge loops"

enter image description here
