The transmission oil cooler may be leaking coolant into the trans fluid.

in my car the two lines of the transmission pass by the radiator, so that means that the problem is in the radiator?

Correct, the two lines that go into the radiator flow into a seperate passage, or cooler inside the radiator. One line is in, one line is out. So the trans cooler inside the radiator rusted/correcoded and now the 2 fluids are mixing. Do not drive the car!!! Transmission hate water!! You'll need to FLUSH both the engine and transmission of their fluids, replace the radiator and hoses, and refill.
