This could be the front pump in the tranny sucking air due to a restricted filter, or the front pump bearing is worn just enough it is contacting the pumps housing slightly, if it is just a filter a tranny service should fix the problem, but if it is a pump bearing then the trans will have to be pulled and the pump assembly replaced.
