Fix your indentions, that's all it is.

from random import randint

random = randint(1, 3)
loop = True

while loop is True:

    print("Start of the game...")

if random == 1:
    player_choice: int = int(input("Type 1 for Rock, 2 for paper, 3 for scissors... : "))
    if player_choice == 1:

        print("You choose Rock!")

        print("This round is a tie")

    elif player_choice == 2:

        print("You choose Paper!")

        print("You won this round")

    elif player_choice == 3:

        print("You choose scissors!")
        
        print("You lost this round")

elif random == 2:

    #2 is paper

    player_choice = input("Type 1 for Rock, 2 for paper, 3 for scissors... : ")

    if player_choice == 1:

        print("You choose Rock!")

        print("You lost this round")

    elif player_choice == 2:

        print("You choose Paper!")

        print("This round is a tie")

    elif player_choice == 3:

        print("You choose scissors!")

        print("You won this round")

elif random == 3:

    #3 is scissors

    player_choice = input("Type 1 for Rock, 2 for paper, 3 for Scissors... : ")

    if player_choice == 1:

        print("You choose Rock!")

        print("You won this round")

    elif player_choice == 2:

        print("You choose Paper!")

        print("You lost this round")

    elif player_choice == 3:

        print("You choose Scissors!")

        print("This round is a tie")

put quotation marks '' between the numbers when you are processing an input.

What is not working? Can you be more specific? Do you have compilation errors? Runtime errors? Or the code runs, but it doesn't do what you want it to do? What is that you want but works differently in the implementation?

If you get the indentations right your code runs OK (but it's an infinite loop and you don't have any nice way to exit).

from random import randint

random = randint(1, 3)
loop = True

while loop is True:
    print("Start of the game...")
    if random == 1:
        player_choice = int(input("Type 1 for Rock, 2 for paper, 3 for scissors... : "))
        if player_choice == 1:
            print("You choose Rock!")
            print("This round is a tie")
        elif player_choice == 2:
            print("You choose Paper!")
            print("You won this round")
        elif player_choice == 3:
            print("You choose scissors!")
            print("You lost this round")
    elif random == 2:
        #2 is paper
        player_choice = input("Type 1 for Rock, 2 for paper, 3 for scissors... : ")
        if player_choice == 1:
            print("You choose Rock!")
            print("You lost this round")
        elif player_choice == 2:
            print("You choose Paper!")
            print("This round is a tie")
        elif player_choice == 3:
            print("You choose scissors!")
            print("You won this round")
    elif random == 3:
        #3 is scissors
        player_choice = input("Type 1 for Rock, 2 for paper, 3 for Scissors... : ")
        if player_choice == 1:
            print("You choose Rock!")
            print("You won this round")
        elif player_choice == 2:
            print("You choose Paper!")
            print("You lost this round")
        elif player_choice == 3:
            print("You choose Scissors!")
            print("This round is a tie")
