Sounds pretty normal to me.Transmission fluid will get discoloured from red to a brownish grey... best thing to do is flush it and then change filters and fluid. I had my trans fluid flushed and both filters changed. Just make sure they follow the guidelines of replacing the spin on inside the transmission. This filter if it is not installed properly can cause a problem with the truck not engaging reverse or drive from a cold start... it does go, but is slow to do so... Its something to do with the filter leaking out the fluid from the torque converter. Hope this helps....
