Sliding closet door gaps-is it not plumb?

installing a 72x80 sliding closet door. They closet was recently reframed by someone else....
when i slide when door over to the left there's a gap at the top left when i slide the door all the way to the right theres a gap at the bottom right?? can this be fixed with door adjustment screws on the wheels at the bottom track??? or does this mean the door frame is not plumb....

Yep. The wheels affect how plumb the door sits on the jamb.

It means the door frame is not plumb or the floor is not level, probably the floor.
Yes, you can adjust the bottom wheels.
Adjust the wheels to where the door is parallel to one side of the opening, then slide it and see if it is also parallel to the other side.
If you can't get both sides perfectly parallel, you have to compromise with small gaps. If the gaps are not small, that needs to be addressed after you've tried.
