no when too

My 2004 Lexus ES330 has a problem, which I believe is in the transmission. Last night after driving through some local neighborhoods checking out Christmas lights, when I got home and parking the car is the garage I noticed a smell of maybe oil overheated or burnt. I wasn’t sure what to think about it. Please note: the car ran fine the whole time we were out, for maybe two hours or so. This morning when I started the car, I immediately heard a whining noise, which was very noticeable. I turned the engine off right away, and checked the engine oil level which was good. I had just replaced the engine oil and filter about two weeks ago which was about 400 miles ago. I then checked the transmission fluid which definitely has a burnt smell to it. Since the car ran great while we were out the entire time, what do you think is going on?? THANKS I look forward to your responses.
