I could hear it coming from the transmission and it's mostly when I have it in first gear 2 and 3rd it goes away the gear box does have a lil play so could that be it ?

ALL fluids should be ck'd, at every engine oil change!
At 54K miles it should have been changed a couple of times already.
Learn to do it yourownself---

Dried U joint can make a squeaking sound but are not related to gears, more to vehicle speed.

Check'n fluid levels is easy. All you need is a couple of wrenches.
All fluid levels should have been ck'd the day you drove it home.
