GET IT OUT!!
Either suck it out (via topsider or similar pump device), or drain some of the fluid.
I have heard that overfilling the transmission can have some seriously negative effects, one being gasket failure!
Get some out ASAP. Do a SEARCH too though to make sure that you are reading the dipstick properly... it's much more technical than you'd think
