'08 1 series hatchback jerky movements

Hello good people!
I noticed a jerkyness in my car the last few days. It started about 5 days ago as I was starting my car at about -17 degrees celcius. It took about 3 seconds for the car to start fully, as it was very cold. Then I noticed that the engine lamp was yellow. This light turned off about 1 minute later. When I drove off the driveway, I noticed that the car had some jerky movements. This specially happend, and still happens at 1500 RPM at 3rd gear, but not only. Btw; the car is automatic, with the option of using "manual" selection. I notice that when I turn this manual function on, and shift up myself, the car accelerates more smoothly, even tho the problem is still noticeable sometimes. I do not feel any jerkyness at higher speeds like 60-80 km/h. Is this something serious, should I take it to a mechanic asap? I have about 0 knowledge about cars and engines, so I have no clue whats going on. Found this thread: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=957618 with about the same problems. Could it be something with my transmission oil?

Help much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Drive safe!

Edit: Found this video that exactly describes my problem:
