Torque converter leaked out fluid??

So my car was being trailered to my friends shop to get fixed and as it was geting dragged onto the trailer, there was red fluid that was dripping from somewhere. At the time, I thought it was from the transmission because I left the drain plug unbolted, but thinking back on it, when I put my engine, trans and converter on and jacked the engine up to put it into my car, the converter leaked fluid out. I was wondering if this was normal, probably not, and is there like a gasket that goes between the converter and trans that I forgot about? Or if the circulation of fluid in the transmission puts some fluid into the converter too? Because my car's not running at the moment, how would I be able to tell if the converter did leak out the fluid? It'll have some obvious affects while driving the car, probably feel very sluigish if not break? And what do you think I should do about this? Thanks.

Thers is a transmission shaft seal that is mounted on the transmission for the convertor.Is this a new transmission ? Also I would crawl underneath and look for fluid thats dripping from anything then try to trace to its origin,Johnny

Brand new transmission, and it was only when my car was dragged onto the trailor, it's been sitting for like a month now.
