Check the water level in the toilet tank. Is it over the top of the overflow pipe?

Ok then you'll need to replace the fill valve and the flapper in the toilet. The best option for a new fill valve is a Fluidmaster 400. They are inexpensive, reliable and widely available. It also comes with good instructions.
