The fluid in most automatic transmissions are checked while the transmission is in park, while the engine is hot and at idle. Best thing to do is check it after you have driven somewhere. When you get home, don't turn the car off, pop the hood, pull the dipstick and check the fluid reading. If you need to add fluid, do it slowly...maybe half a pint at a time. You do not want to over fill it. Usually fluid is added right down the same tube where the dipstick goes. Good luck.
