what is the actual level? your pics don't show the actual level, just a smear all along the stick.
Engine running, select drive, select reverse, then place in neutral, remove dipstick, wipe, reinsert, remove, check level within 45 seconds of selecting neutral. Must be at C mark transmission cold. If it is, drive until trans is at operating temp and check, should be at H mark. If its low, add correct oil until its at the appropriate mark and recheck for correct Hot level after 20 miles minimum driving. DO NOT OVERFILL
Your level "reducing" when running means you aren't checking it correctly, and its filling the galleries and clutches with oil making it appear that you are losing oil. It has to have gone somewhere, whats leaking?
