rent late fees = eviction?

I currently rent an apt and a parking space behind it. I was running short on funds and I paid my rent on the apt late and have yet to pay for the parking space. I got a call today from the rental office telling me that i owe $160 ($65 late fee and $95 for the parking space) and that if I didn't pay today that they would file an eviction notice, which will cost me $50.

Can my landlord file an eviction notice and charge me for it when the balance is a late fee and not my actual rent? I suppose they could ''evict'' me from my parking space, but that wasn't the impression I got.
