It sounds like the transmission is low on oil.
I would suggest to first check that the transmission oil has not leaked into the coolant of the engine cooling system. Check at the expansion bottle (cold engine) and see if there is any red/pink sludge in the coolant, see picture below.
If this has happened then this will indicate that the transmission oil cooler, part of the radiator on your vehicle, has failed.
If the coolant is still clean then next check the transmission fluid level. Locate the dipstick for the transmission, start the vehicle and let idle. Pull out dipstick and check if any oil is showing between the marks. If none or very low then let the vehicle get to operating temperature. Check the oil level again. If still low or nothing is showing then add the correct oil, check with your local parts store. How to add oil please see instructions below.
