new toilet problem

I have a fairly new toilet (3 months) a low flow Kohler that is annoyingly refilling when not being used. The flapper looks to be fine, Wondering what else could be the problem? Plenty of slack in the chain as well. Also, the water in the tank is very warm almost to hot,am wondering why and could this affect refilling problem? This toilet is in 2nd floor bath that backs up to my laundry room,Thanks

Cool

The chain on the flapper should be shortened to where it just allows the flapper to close fully.
Also, it sounds like the toilet water supply is connected to a hot water supply line instead of a cold water supply line as it should be, but that should not affect the refilling, but it may be affecting the flapper.
If shortening the chain doesn't solve the problem, you may need to repalce that flapper.
Good Luck!
