Default 01 Ram - 5.2 motor, trans sounds odd!

Had the truck for about 2 months now. 5.2 motor, 93k, runs great. Trans shifts fine, seems there is no issue with it. Since having it there have been a 2 or 3 times when put in reverse on a cold start the trans has a whining sound like the PS unit is going out. But the sound is coming from the trans in the rev gear only when cold. Never does it when it is warm and most of the time does not do it at all cold or hot. When it does it it still works properly just makes the noise. Is there a pump in the trans that may be going out or jsut does not like cold? Last I looked the fluids in it were ok? Trans pan need a drop and new filter maybe?

I'd suspect either the trans pump or the torque converter is making the noise. Mine did when it was cold, too. I just got used to letting it warm up a bit. Nothing ever happened with the trans and it worked just fine.
