    Probably one of two conditions is causing your toilet problems -

    A) A clogged toilet. Since plunging hasn't addressed the issue you need to use a closet auger. Most home improvement centers sell them and YouTube has instruction videos on their usage.

    B) You have a blocked toilet vent pipe. This is a vertical vent line that permits air to enter the sewer line. If this is blocked the act of flushing the toilet causes a vacuum that can contribute to clogging the toilet.

    If you aren't comfortable proceeding, then you probably will need to call a plumbing service. Best of luck.
