You can't tell anything about the serviceability of a fluid by color. Don't even try. If it's full, that's good news.
The CVT fluid can be tested by a dealer - that's the only test that matters. If in doubt, you can just change it.
Problems like this are tricky because they are intermittent. The next thing to do is have the codes read. Ideally, by a dealer - but if not, many parts stores will read OBDII codes for you. That may or may not give you detail on a problem like this.
My understanding is that Nissan USA has a good will program that will replace a CVT even if it's a year out of warranty, as long as it's low mileage. The dealer can inquire and see if you're qualified. Doesn't hurt to try . I got this information from the Nissan dealership in Flagstaff, Arizona. They have done quite a number of CVT replacements under this good will program from Nissan.
