It sounds like you left the lights on and the battery went flat by leaving overnight it built up enough charge to start the car. When it was cranking the battery voltage went low enough to store a voltage fault and put the trans light on now you’re using the car it has charged the battery so no more warning lights the oil useage will settel down with use

yellow is low level, red is low pressure. i think this is in u.s. cars though. not sure about euro, canada.

they can use a quart every 5-8 k. if that is it, and not increasing, i'd leave it alone...
