Trans fluid is normally red....

But some coolants are pink nowadays....

whats it smell like? if its sweet smelling its coolant

if it smells like..."crap" its gear oil....which means it could be trans...or it could be powersteering cuz that smells bad too

Check your reservoirs then compare the levels again over the next few days. As mentioned, it could be ATF, coolant, PS (some PS systems use ATF).
