Weird One Off Occurrence?

Today my car started shifting horribly. The DCT felt like it was skipping 2nd gear and going straight to 3rd, with a noticeable lurch between gears. It was very cold out so I waited to see if it would go away after it warmed up but it continued to occur throughout my 6 mile in city trip. After I finished shopping I started the car again and it shifted perfectly after that. I suspect that it would have cleared out earlier if I had turned the car off and back on again. I guess there was some kind of queertron in the electronics.

Anybody ever see anything like this before? Is this a prelude to more problems?

2012 SEL with 11,500 miles.

The DCT transmission is covered by the 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty.
