Out of the blue my employer called me into his office and said we were parting ways. I needed to retire. I am a 65 year old female.
My employer then went on to say he was replacing me with a 51 year old male that was in need of a job. This male has NO experience in the company's field and no experience in my particular job.
Do I have grounds for job discrimination.

I suggest that you contact a local employment attorney immediately. Arrange a free consultation so you can explore your options and the details of your specific situation. Doing so will only cost your free time and could help to protect you a great deal. Please do not delay, the Federal statute of limitations for claims of this sort is only 300 days from the date of last discrimination.

You're free to file a complaint with the EEOC and state equivalent, and talk with a local employment attorney who handles discrimination cases.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
