Drain and refill it. Do not flush it. 


If the fluid is clean and there are no drive ability issues, I would do a full fluid exchange plus filter.


Drain and fill along with changing the filter.  Make a note of the mileage and from this point onward stay on top of the ATF change intervals to get the most life out of the transmission.
