Check the seating of the flapper.  Ten to one to will find something there . . . I found an elastic band (probably from shipping) that was lying over the lip under the flapper.  Once removed, no more leaking!

Either make sure flapper isn't hanging up with the chain or adjust water tower to turn off when water gets within 1/2 to 3/4 inch of top of water filler tube in center of tank

You have probably figured this out by now, but we had the same problem when we bought out house, complete with new glacier bay toilets. If you look inside the tank, if I remember correctly, there was a piece of some kind of plastic (might be clear, it was hard to see), that comes with the toilet and was getting in the way of the seal, making the toilet run continuously.

There can be many reasons for this. For example, incorrect installation, wear of pipelines, some mechanical damage. Your question is too general. Take a look at this article. You'll find here some ways of fixing your problem. They are described pretty detailed so you shouldn't face any problem with it. If you do then only a plumber can help you.

How do I adjust the water level in my tank? The directions in the booklet is confusing. I have purchased a Glacier Bay toilet from Home Depot.

Either the flapper in the tank is not sealing or the fill valve is stuck open, Take the lid off the tank and you can find the problem.

I have a flapless glacier bay toilet that keeps running, the mechinism has failed and I can't seem to locate a replacement. Home Depot does not sell the mechinism. Where can I purchase one?

Check at Home Hardware....I used to work there and they have a wide variety of different parts for toilets.
