Will i need a new transmission? on 2002 Mercury Mountaineer

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The problems is the O/D light blinking fast then a signal sounds and "Check Transmission" message appears. Does this mean the worst? or is there a (hopefully) sensor or selonoid problem? Any help would be appreciated.
