5 speed trans problems

hi guys, im new around here and i just bought a 2000 focus with a 5 speed about a week ago. well it didnt start having problems up until about 2 days ago, it first started out as it would grind trying to go into reverse when i first started it up, well now its hard to get it into any gear. when im going down the highway i can get it into 4th and 5th easy, but first and second are the really hard ones. i do alot of in town driving, i dont know if that would have anything to do with it, but i really want to figure out whats going on. oh and i get smoother shifts after i drive it for awhile, it goes into gear pretty easy. but at first its a real PITA to get into gear. thanks for any input, im really hoping this isnt a exspensive fix.
