Check the fluid, is it at the right level and nice and red? When checking the transmission fluid level, the engine should be warm, parked on a level surface, in park and running. Should be between the cross hatch area, check both sides of the dipstick, lower side is your level.

Could be a band or servo inside the transmission. If fluid level is correct and only reverse gear, that would be my bet.
