My 1998 Chevy Malibu transmission slips when cold , first time you want to take off the engine revs up but, the car doesn't move. When the car finaly warms up, it pulls and drives fine. What does this mean?

It means time to start looking for a new trans.

Couldn't it just mean the trans oil is cold?

If you think it could be low then you need to check the fluid level.
