How can I fix my toilet that is acting weird?

This morning when I went into the bathroom, the level of water in the toilet bowl was abnormally low. Flushing fills the bowl perilously close to overflowing, then the water level drops back to normal. But then immediately, the level of water in the bowl keeps dropping quickly, and within 30 seconds there's barely any left. It's as though there's a leak, but I don't see any water anywhere. The flush is also not very powerful. The tank looks like it's behaving normally.
This is a rental, so I could dump (heh heh) the problem on the landlord, but he's a clueless bumblefuck. We are on the fifth floor of a six-floor building, and the place is about five years old. Do you have any explanation or suggestion for how to fix it?
(Please tell me that things will magically fix themselves without my having to do anything....)
