When is the last time you did a fluid change? Hardly time to start worrying about replacing the tranny itself.
Pick-up a quality fluid (dipstick will tell you for certain what formula, manual will tell you how many quarts), a filter, and even consider something like Lubegard additive. I did so the last two times I've changed the fluid in my '05 6 speed and it behaves MUCH better than it did when I bought the car. (I also have an secondary tranny cooler, but that may or may not benefit you)
I don't know your particular tranny has a serviceable filter, but if it doesn't consider adding an in-line magnetic one.
