Take a good look at it, rub it beteen you fingers, paint some on a white piece of paper & smell it. You should be able to easily see the red in it & smell it if its tranny fluid.

Know what you can do? Take your car back to Toyota. You have a 2003 right? You would be wise to capitalize on the warranty while you can. I wouldn't ask someone here for a diagnosis and possible fix on a transmission problem if I was still under warranty. Take the car in and have them check it and/or fix it. That's all that needs to be said.
