My 08 is about to hit it's first 50k miles. Tranny Change or Flush?

Hi everyone. A month ago I bought a 2008 Pontiac G6 GT at 48k miles and in about 3-4 weeks it's gonna hit 50k miles for the first time. I know at 50k you have to mess with the tranny fluid to help keep it going but the problem is I have no clue if any previous owner(s) before me has ever mess with the transmission fluid or not.

I talked to the person who I bought the car from and he doesn't know himself, and since this car doesn't have a dipstick I can't see how good or bad the fluid is. So i'm just wondering should I have the fluid 'changed' and have the tranny filter and about 50% of the current fluid changed out? Or should I just have all the fluid flushed and start fresh?

I think your best bet is to drain and refill. and also change the filter. When people start flushing is when they have problems. It loosens up particles.
