To make a wild guess, it is probably your "fill valve". That is the thing in the toilet that lets the water into the tank and then shuts it off after reaching the right level. A new fill valve is not that difficult to install. I like the fluidmaster 400a.

I agree. If you remove the tank lid and flush, you will probably see water being shot out from where it shouldn't be. The Fluidmaster 400A is under $10 and has great, easy to understand installation instructions.
