Transmission OverHeating!!!!!!

Hello guys,
Its nearly 2 month now that i have bought my car and drove it for 4000 km, and now i have problem with the warning that i get when im on high traffic or climate road(going up), i get warning that says transmission or clutch overheat check the manual book, i checked the book nothing there about this and the thing is when i turn off the car waiting for 2min and drive again it solve the problem, is there anything that i have to do when im on high traffics like turning off the start and stop system or anything that can solve this problem.

Go to the garage asap, its not suppose to do that, mabye its low oil level in the transmission or mabye just a sensor, but something is not right.

TCT has a dry clutch, no oil. Overheating is a known risk but shouldn't happen with normal or even spirited driving.

The gearbox itself will still contain oil. "Dry clutch" is used to differentiate the TCT from the other type of dual-clutch where the clutches are inside the gearbox casing, and thus submerged in oil.

Sounds like a fault, though. Overheating a gearbox is hard to do in "normal" driving...
