I would guess a stopped up flush valve. I have had it happen to me. Sometimes you can remove them and "flush" them out, other times you just have to replace them..

The eastest way is to pull the toilet.

Yours may be different but 1) disconnect water connection 2) take nuts off the two bolts holding it down.

Once you get it off there are a couple of screws and piece of linkage to take loose to remove the valve.

Be sure and pay attention to the way the valve comes off, maybe even shoot a picture or two. It will be valuable when you start to reinstall it.

Most of that most likely was there during the manufacturing process.

That is a good thing. It's always good to do it yourself if possible, but sometimes its beyond your skill set. The trick is to know what you can do and when you need someone with more expertise.

Also when you do it your self you gain knowledge that will help you later.
