1998 Gt transmission rattle

I am the proud owner of a 1998 Gt convertible and I love the speed of it but recently I've noticed (with 148,000 miles on it) the transmission has been clattering upon start up. I can't promise it's the transmission but that's where it sounds like it's coming from. It only last for a couple seconds occurring about nine out of ten times I start the car right after it starts. The same noise is heard whenever I put my foot down in the higher ranges of 1st 2nd and 3rd gear. (I haven't been going fast enough to get fourth gear or fifth gear to make it so I don't know if they would or not) does anyone have any thoughts as to what this might be or how to fix it? Thanks!

Does it sound like its something that might be loss and rattling because of vibrations? What do you have 5 speed or auto?
