Remove the tank cover and watch the mechanism in the tank when you flush. This problem is often caused by the flapper falling back onto the opening before the flush is complete. You may have too much slack in the chain that goes from the handle. If so, simply adjust the chain and try again.

If the mechanism is shot, you can buy a partial or complete replacement kit from a home center - they are usually inexpensive.

Good luck.
