IT means your transmission cooler, which is inside your radiator has failed. You need a new radiator. You might also have coolant in your transmission fluid, So don't drive it anymore. Flush the coolant through the system, replace the radiator, and flush the transmission fluid at least once and hope it lasts as water in the transmission is not good for the clutch plates.
