Unless it was added after-market, there is no drain plug for the transmission fluid. The pan has to be dropped to replace the fluid.

Check all of your fluid levels - transmission at operating temperature, car running, on a level surface, in park. Check the power steering fluid, and your coolant level. Are you running Dex as a coolant. That can, at times take on more of a reddish color as it mixes with things.

Well I just got a re-built engine in due to pontiac dealership here messed up so they put all new fluids in and proper ones. I check my tranny fluid last weekend and it was a little low. I'm going to check it tomarrow and see how it is. Might bring it to my buddy to have him take a look at everything

If it'* green and gooey, your AC compressor just died.
