SOURCE: toilet trouble
Based on the phrasing of your question, I'm thinking that the bad noise happens for the first time when the valve opens to start filling (this happens when you first let water into the bowl) and then again when the valve closes (when the cistern is full). Valves sometimes have a high-pitched squealing noise when it takes a long time to open or close this valve. Sometimes, you can make it go away by turning the screw to adjust the height that the ball/float has to be in order to shut off the water (the more horizontal, the longer it takes to shut off the flow, and the longer the noise continues). Sometimes, this is just caused by an aging mechanism and it turns out to be quicker and easier to just replace that part of the toilet (they make replacement kits that are very inexpensive and easy to install).

Did you replace the flush valve or the flapper?
There must either be a problem with the seal between the two surfaces of the flapper and flush valve or the flapper is being prevented by the flush system to returning to make a seal against the flush valve after the water completes draining during the flush cycle or more likely water is draining through the overflow tube.
Make sure the sealing surfaces are clean and not damaged.
Make sure the flapper is not being interfered with and is able to return to the closed position to make a complete seal against the flush valve.
Check adjustment of the water fill level to make sure the water is not filling above the water overflow. If the inlet valve does not shut-off when the level is adjusted to the proper level the water inlet valve may need replacing.

SOURCE: Everytime you flush the toilet,
one of 2 problems may be present, first may be the floating ball, it may not be getting back to the correct position and there fore cut the water supply off, as it should, you can check to see if this is the problem by lifting the arm up a bit and see if the water stops flowing, if it does then to fix this i bent the alloy arm that was holding the floater a little more in the down ward position, if not the problem the the rubber seal at the bottom is most likely not sealing properly, may just need a wipe around, a bit of a tight squeeze, turn the water off first, have a go

check /replace the small rubber washer at the end of the fill tube as they tend to grow with age and reduce the flow of water past the inlet
