The first thing I always check with automatic transmissions is the fluid level. Unfortunately if your automatic trans takes its time shifting to reverse, that may be signs of transmission wear. Start with the fluid check first

Mine does the same thing of the engine is cold. I put it in neutral for about 5 seconds and then to reverse. No problem. The rattling could be your trans dust cover.
