Default Hesitation shifting from 1st to 2nd

I have a 2000 ls and over the past month or so I've noticed it hesitating a bit when shifting from 1st to 2nd. When going steady at 20-25 mph the car seems a little off and makes a low noise. When i give it some gas to get it above 25 it makes a noticeable shift and then feels right again. All other shifts are smooth and barely noticeable. What could be causing this?
