1987 Trans Problems

I was driving the other day and everything seem to be fine, I came to a stop sign and when I took off it did not want to come out of second gear and kind of felt like it was slipping when I let off the accelerator. I put it in neutral and back in drive and it shifted into third gear. I drove it down the road to the next stop and after I took off from the stop again it acted the same way. If you bring up the RPM's a bit it will shift. I have parked it and not sure if the trans is going out or if there is a problem with a sensor? Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this? I checked the fluids and it was full and clean with no burnt smell.
