If this is a manual transmission, I would have the hydraulic clutch bled out. May be air in the system. Check the fluid also.

Did a filter and fluid change yesterday it's an automatic transmission

If you take it to have the codes checked, it would say what is going on. It may be just a solenoid needing to be replaced, but a scanner capable of reading trany code would pick this up.
