Turn off the water at the shutoff valve, flush the toilet and hold down the handle. There may be a little water left in the bottom of the tank, but don't worry about it. Wipe the flapper seat with a clean cloth to make sure it's free of debris, and check it for cracks or splits (Image 1).

Leaking toilet tank
Is the tank cracked or is it leaking from the bolts that go through the bottom? If the bolts are leaking shut the water off, Should have a shut off valve behind the toilet, If not possible around your house. Mine is out by the road where the water meter guy can check it. But shut the water off and put 2 new bolts and gaskets through the toilet. Very cheap fix. under $4.00 USD

1.6 toilet will not fill
Make sure the water valve to the toilet is actually letting water into the fill valve. Turn off valve, remove from fill valve, run water into a pan to see pressure and confirm water flow. If water flow and pressure good, replace the fill valve.

Bottom of bowl is stained very much. Appears to be a defect in the the finish?
Try using one of these A product called Kaboom Bowel Blaster and let it sit in the bowl for a while, then brush clean. This worked for me when others failed. You can try muriatic acid as a toilet bowl cleaner.Again let it sit for a while then brush and flush available from places like Home depot.Sometimes the toilets are not glazed as well as they should be you might call it a defect I call it poor quality control.
