You can just throw it away. It was a plug that was used when the transmission was first filled on the assembly line. It is left in the pan because it does no harm and is too much trouble to remove.

the thing you found is a plug that the factory has installed into the dip stick hole wile assembling the car, when the dip stick tube is installed they just push the plug into the transmission oil pan and leave it there it cant hurt anything, so when you service the transmission for the first time you find the plug and throw it away it is not needed, don't feel foolish you would be amazed at how many times i have been asked this question.

Testimonial: "Thank you very helpful!!"
if its the plastic piece its nothing, on the assembly line that is in there to stop anything from going into the trans, its a plug they use until the dipstick is installed

It was installed at the factory during assembly and is not required.the part is used in the factory when the initial transmission fluid is put into the transmission to keep out dirt. After the initial fluid fill, the part is useless.
