Transmission fluid turn dark after 7000 miles

I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla 1,8 LE with 97,000 miles on the odometer.

During the 85,000 maintenance service, the dealership told me that the transmission oil needed to be changed, so I shopped around and found a better deal at an out of town Toyota dealership. They performed the transmission fluid flush at 89640 and I actually saw the technician when he hooked up the machine to the transmission and did the service.

Right now, at 97000, I wanted to check the condition of the transmission fluid and I was surprised to see that it has a dark purple color.

I wonder if there is an issue with my transmission and if I should take it to a transmission shop and have the pan dropped and the transmission filter oil changed instead of just flushing it.

Any advice would be highly appreciated

Thank You
