09 Clubman Transmission temp warning

Today I was driving my "new to me" Mini Clubman. I had the cruise set around 80mph (the flow of traffic, I promise). after about 30-45 minutes I got the yellow Transmission temp warning light. I've owned the vehicle for less than a week. I really don't want to see warning lights. I pulled over and reset the warning light and it did NOT come back on. But I also pulled back to around 75mph for the remainder of my trip. It also has a pretty good acceleration lag. It doesn't matter if I'm accelerating from a stop or while already in motion.
Any thoughts?

Check its oil level would be the first thought?

engine oil? I have checked the engine oil. But this was a transmission temp warning light. hasn't happened again. I did have 3 people in the car and was climbing a hill at the time the light cam on. I'm in Oklahoma, so I use the word "hill" very loosely. Let's just call it a slight incline.

Check the transmission (gearbox) oil level, not the engine, if its leaking or low it will caused the gearbox to overheat when worked hard, such as loaded going up hill?
