99 power stroke leaking trans fluid

I just bought a 99 powerstroke yesterday I test drove it everything was clean and dry no leaks at all the trans was supposibly rebuilt 2k miles ago on the way home which was 2 hours everything was going great I kept stoping and checking everything out and there were no issues. When I finally got home I happened to look under the truck and it was poring trans fluid from between the engine and the bell housing. I'm new to these trucks and a lot of friends are saying I'm going to most likely need to rebuilt it. I don't think so because it shifts fine it still has a slow leak when it is running warm but not as bad as last night. Any other ideas would be great I would hate to have to rebuild the trans after having it for 2 hours lol

Check fluid level first. I doubt it needs a rebuild. I'd also check to see if it's overheating.

It is low but it shows on the stick still the fluid is also pretty dirty I would have to get a Trans temp gauge to do that wouldn't I to show if it is over heating

Alright would you recommend pulling the Trans and changing seals and cleaning the cooler lines and replacing Trans fluid then I'd like it to stop leaking lol

Update I pulled the inspection cover off the Trans andthe fluid is defiantly leaking from the pump seal I also dried the Trans pan and fluid smelled burnt. Should I be worried about the smell?

The Trans looks like its been out but you think they were that cheap and just reused the old fluid?
