Often beers are much darker when they are in their full volume in the carboy. Do you mean it changed colors or was always darker than it should be?

The yeast dropped out. Now you're seeing the actual color. It won't seem red when you're only looking through a glass of it and not a carboy.

It was a nice gold color until a week ago it turned red.

The only thing I can think of then is that when you transferred it it became oxygenated
