HELP 2014 start up whine

2014 Cherokee, ~24500 miles on it. Automatic transmission , 3.2L V6

So I bought my 2014 Cherokee about 2 weeks ago and two days after I drove home with it I started to notice little things, the attached video being the most egregious. Anyone else have this problem? It only happens when it's very cold in the morning on the first start up of the day and lasts maybe 10 second, but its extremely loud and high pitched.
The other issues are choppy gear shifting between gears 2-3 (but its not horrible, just noticeable) which in hoping a transmission update clears up, and a buzzing noise whenever I drive between 35-55mph and the RPM is about 1500?
Anyone else have these problems?? I loved this thing when I initially got at but all these things are starting to bug me. Any help appreciated

Im going to the dealership to get the transmission updated, so any other info I could go in there with could really help!
