According to the Fiqh rules, if someone missed their Jumuah Salah then they should only perform Zuhr Salah just as it is performed on other days.
Hence, you should perform the Zuhr Salah instead if you have not already performed. You should also repent to Allah for allowing the Jumuah Salah to be missed and seek His forgiveness. This is sufficient to meet the procedural requirement. In order to attain the peace of heart, you may also perform two Rak'ah of Salat-ut Tawbah and offer some charity as well.
It is a very good sign for you that you feel guilty for missing your Jumuah Salah.
And Allah knows best.
