Default transmission whistles/moans in reverse

hello, i have 2002 (late) with the 5.9L 4x4 with automatic. i picked this up to use around the house and do some towing of my boat. the truck runs well. as you can see this is my first post since the truck is new to me. i don't know too much about these, except i see from doing a little reading that they might have transmission problems. a transmission question has brought me to your board today. When I shift into reverse, there is immediately a sound like a low-pitch whistle/moan/whine that I can hear inside the truck - perhaps a pump noise?. its tough to hear from the outside due to engine noise. there are no OBD codes thrown and the transmission seems to work in all gears. this noise is not present in forward gears, neutral, or park. Fluid is clean, pink, and at the right level. is this normal, or perhaps a sign of trouble to come? thanks for any advice

Ive heard that a stopped up trans filter can cause a whining sound...
