: Try snugging up the nut holding the ball cock/flush valve . . . just above the upper supply connection.

If the supply is leaking where it screws onto the ballcock, the threads on the ballcock might be cracked (this happens on plastic ballcocks). If this is the case replace the ballcock.

Make sure the leak is coming from the supply and not where the ballcock bolts to the tank. If the supply line keeps leaking from the top the ballcock might be cracked where the supply screws on (this happens on plastic ballcocks).
