transmission fluid level on 1998 Lexus GS300

should the engine be running and warm when checking the fluid level in tranmission, if so my level is just visable on dipstick 1/4 0f an inch, do you think I need to top it up very carefully????

YES IT SHOULD BE RUNNING AND THE LEVEL SHOULD BE AS MARKED ON THE DIPSTICK. MOST OF THE TIME ITS APPROX 2" UP ON STICK
