    Most likely a washer on your fill valve. Remove the tank lid and cup the top of the fill valve in your hand, squeeze a bit and flush. Did you feel vibration?

    Looks like the OP said Fillmaster so that's what I posted a picture of. Similar products but fillmaster has an adjustment screw on top of the valve washer
