Go to home depot and tell them you need a tank-to-bowl gasket. They have them at home depot and it may come with new bolts for the tank-to-bowl fastening. New bolts would be a good idea to pick up anyway. One rubber washer under each head, then a rubber washer at the bottom of the tank. Use a metal washer and nut to secure this to the tank, then use another washer and nut from the bowl to the tank.

As long as there is no water leaking from the tank to bowl connection, you are OK. You would know if it was leaking here, because you would have water dripping out onto the floor.
Verify that the water level in your tank is below the top of your new flush valve's overflow tube. If the water level comes to the top, it will overflow into the toilet bowl. This can be easily fixed with an adjustment to the fill valve.
If the water is not overflowing into this tube, then the only way you can lose water is through the flapper. You said you changed the flush valve, which would have come with a new flapper attached to it, but maybe buy a new flapper and see what happens???

SOURCE: cannot get the bolts and
Some manufacturers specify only to use rubber washers inside the tank, and only one bolt on bottom. I usually assemble the bolt with one metal washer on bolt ( or bolt with large head) then a rubber washer, then through tank, then another washer, then a metal washer (brass or stainless) then another nut. Snug these nuts up tight, but be careful not to over tighten or you'll break the tank. Do this to all the bolts. Then set the tank on bowl, with the bolts extending through the bottom. Make sure your gasket is up all the way on the nipple, so the tank will tighten to the stops on the bowl. Now put another set of rubber washer, and metal washer and nut (thumb nuts are fine here) Tighten till tank doesn't rock and is resting on stops. Now it doesn't have to be so tight, as the bolts are already tight in the tank. You can get a fluidmaster bolt kit at home depot that has enough bolts, washers and all

The rubber washer goes to the inside of the tank under the flush valve which gets screwed on with the large plastic nut on the bottom side of the tank. Then the foam gasket fits over the plastic nut which goes into the toilet bowl hole for the water to flow into the bowl. Tank needs to be removed from the toilet bowl.
