please help! transmission issues

on my 2001 330ci today i felt what seemed to be transmission related issues with my car while driving-also, the exclamation point in a rough circle came up on my dashboard next to my letter D for drive-i have had my car for 8 years and it now has 132,000 miles on it-doesnt the fact that my car demonstrated driveability issues and then this indicator came on and i have never changed the transmission fluid would it make sense to start there? thanks!

Before jumping onto transmission, you should get codes to find the faults.
