Take off the back of the toilet. Look down to the bottom and you'll see a flap that is raised when you flush it. That flap is leaking. IF the toilet is old I strongly recommend the Gerber viper toilet. Inexpensive and works great.

ANS 2 - change the flapper valve - takes about 5 minutes and costs less than $5
