I would change the tranny fluid and inspect it. Refill with new and if this persist then take it in to get examined.

Rough Shifting - Abrupt or hard shifting between gears is the most common sign of transmission problems.

Fluid - Dark or dirty transmission fluid is an indicator of potential transmission problems.

Leaks - Small stains or drops of fluid under the vehicle may not be a problem; however, wet spots and puddles should be given immediate attention. If you run your vehicle with low or no transmission fluid, you will most likely end up having to replace your transmission.

Sounds - A rhythmic, heavy knocking sound may indicate transmission problems.

Grinding - If you notice grinding when you shift gears, you may have a problem with your transmission.

Slippage - When the engine speeds up and the vehicle doesn't respond accordingly, it is a sign of a failing transmission.

Missed Shifts - A delayed or missing response when shifting gears is a sure sign your transmission has failed or is failing.

Popping Out of Gear - Manual transmissions may pop out of gear when you press on or release the gas pedal. This is a sign of a failing transmission and will continue to get worse over time it not fixed.

If you check with a search engine, there are how to guides on how to check both auto and manual transmissions in your driveway, street, and parking lot. Write down what the results are and give them to your tech when you take it in. It will help him/her diagnose it.
