Recently I will hear the sound of my toilet tank filling up on its own. There is no leak in the toilet. I recently changed the stopper. I am thinking it has something to do with the fill valve but can't seem to figure out what the problem could be or how to fix it. HELP!

Yes, since the fill valve fills the tank and is running own its own but... if the water level is too high in the tank and overflowing the overflow tube or, if the flapper valve and/or its seal surface is leaking, either will cause a good fill valve to fill periodically.

Add a few drops of food coloring or soemthing else, soda, to the tank water and watch over a few hours for the color to show up in the bowl, if it does the flapper valve/seal area is leaking.
