Toilet Leak (possibly in tank)

Our downstairs toilet would suddenly sound like it was running for 30 seconds or so and then shut off.

We noticed that somehow the water level in the resevoir tank was leaking and getting lowered enough to make it try and fill up again.

Shutting off the toilet altogether completely drained the resevoir tank so its empty.

We believe its a seal problem but are not sure. Any tips on how to replace it would be greatly appreciated.
