Most likely cause is that the auto transmission is low on fluid. The only accurate way to check the level of Transmission Fluid is to have the engine running (at normal operating temperature - like after a 10 mile trip) and check that fluid level. If it's low, add as required, but a little at a time. An overfilled transmission can be just as harmful as one that is running low on fluid.

What does it mean when your clutch wont go into first on a 2003 Kia Rio?

Do you mean that the car will not shift into first? The clutch is the left pedal on the floor and should work independently of which gear is selected. If the car will not shift into first the clutch may need to be replaced, transmission synchros or gear teeth for first gear could be damaged(chipped,missing or broken) or the shift selector shaft might need to be realigned and/or have it's bushings replaced.
