Transmission warning light on a manual?

2003 325xi manual here.

This warning light showed up a bout a month ago, and I'm not too sure why.

The car doesn't feel any different, my transmission is smooth, my clutch doesn't slip, nothing feels off. I checked the owner's manual and it only mentions this light showing up on the automatic transmission - nothing about manual. My CEL is also on, but I believe that's because of my missing ambient temp sensor (I read that somewhere else).

Note that despite my transmission not feeling a little off, I do sometimes smell a "hot" smell if I push the car a little harder than usual (quick acceleration, high top speed, etc).

Any insight is much appreciated - sorry if wrong forum.

Edit: Not my picture. The only warning lights present on the dash are the gear symbol and the CEL. Also, the car has 175000 km's on it.
