The only way to check the trans fluid is to drain the fluid right out of the trans pan. There should be 5 liters. The only way to get the fluid in is by pumping the fluid back in by means of the fill plug on the lower front of the transmission. I believe it is a 4 or a 6mm allen to remove the plug. Whatever you use to pump the fluid back in needs to seal where the fill plug is because fluid will pour right back out. I would change the fluid at least every 50k.

If your Mini is the CVT automatic, the problem may be software-related. There was a software upgrade issued under warranty during 2002 / 2003. It would be surprising if your car missed out on the upgrade - but worth a check with your Mini dealer.
Next thing to check is your car's battery. If the battery is getting old (and the original battery in a 2002 car would be OLD), you should consider replacing it with a similar high-output battery. The CVT transmission needs plenty of electrical power to operate correctly. After replacing the battery, the transmission will take a couple of days to re-learn your driving technique and return to its original honey-smooth operation.
If the battery replacement doesn't fix things, I regret to inform you that the dealer will become your best and most expensive friend.
