I want to report a bug in Skype Wrapper here but am not able to do it. Do I need to be a member to report a bug? I have a Launchpad account and I tried reporting it while logged in but I see no option to do so.

Those using Launchpad can use it for many things, or can choose only to use certain features. It appears to me that the group providing a PPA for Skype Wrapper only use Launchpad for hosting the packages in a PPA. Some projects may include a pointer to a bug tracker or to the project's homepage, but I don't see one in this case.

There is no rule that a project with a package in a PPA must take bug reports or continue to maintain their package.

Ubuntu uses the infrastructure developed by Debian, and packages follow Debian's rules. Included is a rule that all packages must include a changelog and that they should contain the e-mail for the person responsible for the change.

Assuming you have installed the package you can view /usr/share/doc/skype-wrapper/changelog and view the last (top) changelog entry and that entry will give you a possible e-mail address you could use to ask that individual if bug reports are taken and where to send them. For the skype-wrapper package there is only one entry at this time.

Just for the sake of completeness, I emailed the author and he told me they manage the bugs from Github:
