Are you on flat level ground and the engine running at the time of taking the reading? Ideally you should slowly move through all the gear options and back to park before checking, that makes sure fluid is present throughout the valve body of the transmission.

Yeah I’ve had it up to temp , through all the gears driven it in traffic stop start etc , just can’t work out why it’s doing this , it does drive smooth up and down through gears

The hot marks are the ones most accurate (cold is used as an initial basic guide if the engine isn't able to run etc.). With the engine running the fluid level should be at the Hot marker, if not you need to add more if under or remove some if over.
