Power steering fluid

I have a 2004 Thomas MPV CAT 3126 with power steering pump mounted to back of air compressor

I fixed some power steering leaks and am now ready to fill the system but noticed the power steering fluid is not red like I drained out

Iím assuming it had ATF fluid in it?

Can I use the power steering fluid i already bought instead?

Mgulley82 -》 is it a high pressure line off the pump to a steel line to the front? Something blow and I am trying to figure old what to do.
