    On an electronic digital meter there will be a section of digits indicating of flow.

    If your unsure what to look for ....... turn on a faucet to see the flow indicator on the meter.

    Once you have found the flow indicator and if it does show a flow without anything running....turn off the angle stop valve to the toilets and check the flow indicator to see if it stops.
    There are occasions where the fill valve in the toilet tank are the culprit.

    If the toilets aren't the issue .... try turning off the main water shut off to see if the noise stops.
    Once you find the flow indicator on the water meter, if it shows a flow, I would turn off the main shut off valve first, if the flow doesn't stop the leak isn't inside the house and there is no need to check the toilets. If the flow stops then check your internal plumbing fixtures.
