Toilet 2 likely has a poorly seated flapper, causing it to drain somewhat until it triggers the refill cycle. You might heck to see if the flush chain is kinked placing too much tension on the flapper. You can check to see if the flapper seats on the opening. Check to see if the opening has any debris on it, might as well scrub if with a scouring pad while you are at it. Or you could just get a replacement kit and replace everything and be done with it.
