Question

The bathroom toilet tank runs water periodically. It just comes on, runs for about 30 seconds, and then stops. It doesn't appear to be leaking. I believe the running water is all happening inside the tank.

Is it the fill line? This is my first home so I'm new at the repair thing! Some troubleshooting tips would be great!

Cool

Sounds like you just need to replace the flapper.
Go to "Repair/Fix-It" above and to http://www.bhglive.com/homeimp/ for illustrated how-to info in the Plumbing sections.
Good Luck!
Mike
