There is no dipstick. I suggest taking it back to the place you bought it from, it was a dealer. Do you know if you have a warranty? If it was a private sale, well your paying for the fix yourself. My guess is a bad 2nd gear synchro.

With a Manuel transmission you may have to go under vehicle and undo a plug to check oil hight. As for as popping out of gear, sounds like a bent shifting fork that is not allowing it to go all the way into gear. With the grinding sound I think there is already some damage to some gears in there. If there is any external linkage you possibly could try to adjust so your second gear moves farther travel.
