It's a shared clutch/brake fluid reservoir, and I agree about disregarding trans fluid for now. If it were my car I'd bleed out whatevers in the hydraulic lines and get new fluid in, and make damn sure when refilling that you bleed out all the air.

I don't know what effect the ambient temperature is having and why the problem goes away, it just sounds like there's air in the system up until that point.
