that is the trans mission fluid you dumped. the engine one is at an angle in the corner of the pan in the front where the skid plate is. As far as your transmission goes, the bolt in the picture that is closest to the ground that you used to drain is the drain hole. The one right below it(in terms of picture) that sits is further up(your perspective under the truck) is the fill hole. Go to advance auto and buy Dex III. They have it as their own brand it will get the job done. Also buy a fluid pump. You want to pump fluid into that hole until it start dripping out. Close it. Turn on the car, let the car idle until it warms up. Go through all the gear with out moving a couple of times. In other words, from P to R to D. Do this a couple of times and I guess stay in each gear for a few seconds. Go under neath take that fill plug out, and pump more fluid until it starts to drip. You should be in a better shape now. Atleast you would be able to drive the car a little without risking too much damage. So just drive down the street, then come back. Check your fluid level again. Your fluid level at this point should be set right. Now whatever damage has occurred has occurred. Sadly you wont be able to change that.
I would also suggest draining some of the oil. At this point the oil isnt a big concern so while the engine is cold(before doing the transmission stuff) drain little by little until you're somewhere between fill and full on the dip stick.
Also, if they dont have Dex 3 get dex 4 which is I think IV.It's not ideal since the transmission was designed for Dex 3, but at this point any dex fluid will be better than nothing.
