You need to pull the toilet off the floor and reset it. It's possible the flange that the bolts at the floor hook into is broken. You'll need closet bolts, and a wax ring. Here's a kit with bothhttps://www.lowes.com/pd/Oatey-Johni-Ring-Reinforced-with-Bolts-Toilet-Wax-Ring/3956163
Do you need further instructions?
You're welcome. Not clear if you're all set or need further instructions.
First turn off the water supply to the toilet. Then disconnect the supply tube connected to the bottom of the tank. Next sponge or bail out the water in the tank and the bowl. Then back the nuts off the (closet) bolts at the floor, then lift the toilet off the floor and set it on its back so you can get to the bottom. Scrape the old wax off the bottom of the bowl and the flange at the floor. Then remove the old bolts and insert the new bolts centered in the slots in the flange. Next put the new wax on the bottom of the bowl. Make sure the bowl is dry and that the new wax ring adheres to the bowl. Then lift the bowl (some water might come out) and set it over the bolts. Tighten down the nuts with the plastic trim cap retainer down first and the metal washer on top. The nuts should be tight enough so the bowl doesn't move. Then reconnect the supply tube, turn the water on and flush it a couple times to be sure nothing leaks out at the floor.
