The thump you are hearing in the wall is called water hammer. This article might help you out.

And this might help with the toilet flushing thing.
My downstairs toilet has been giving me a problem for about a month now. I always have to flush twice to get rid of the urine color. The 1st flush, the water swirls, but goes down slowly like the toilet is clogged. The 2nd time the water goes down nicely. It is like this every time. What is wrong with it?

Whenever our toilet acts like it's clogged, I squirt some dishwashing detergent into it, wait at least 15 minutes, and then flush. It clears it every time. Good luck!
