did this just start ? try a fluid change - ? not the TOTAL fluid change - but the kind that removes the pan and replaces the filter - just be 1000 percent sure to see the pan drop - -otherwise go somewhere else
also - take down the vin number - many are on the registration -- then call the local dealer and ask about recalls -- some last the life of the vehicle

Several things to do about this. Look in your Radiator reservoir for a oily sheen and do the same thing for the Radiator if it has a cap and is not sealed. Have the Trans fluid changed and the Trans filter serviced. If possible get a sample of the Trans fluid.
If both the fluids look normal you only need fresh Trans fluid and the Trans filter serviced. Some filters are replaceable and some are just screens which need periodic cleaning. If the fluids do not look good then the Radiator may be leaking into the Trans fluid via the cooling lines. The delay may be due contamination corroding the first of many parts.
The gear engagement is dependent on engine RPM. If, for some reason your motor is idling slower at Startup, the initial gear engagement will be delayed. You could also be down on fluid, which would mean another problem.
The chances of cross contamination are very slim, but it is mentioned because your shifting can be affected in small ways at first, then big costly ways. The self-diagnostics in your car does not cover this problem.
Take the time to check the reputation of the shop you deal with for this simple service.

It seems to be that on the age of your car, the synchronizers of your gearbox are failing.
Try to take it to a transmissions workshop and ask them to test the shifts as you know they will fail. It could be possible to adjust it without dismantling it, but is a job for well equipped experts. It could be checked, assembled and tested in about four days on the shop.
This is not a job that you could repair at home, as it requires special tools and a place in which you can crane the engine and work from underneed the car. It is a frequent failure on that car.
