Question: Transaxel Issue?? $$$

I dont understand why the car is doing this, but it will not shift out of first gear. The Exclamation point in the car is coming on, and the manual says its a transaxel issue. Someone told me it could be TOO MUCH transmission fluid since when the stick was dipped down in there, it came up way past what it should be.

Does anyone know what it could be, and now much it would be to repair it???
