OK, so i was driving today and then, when I tried backing up, the reverse slipped out of place....

Then the second and third geas grind...

Any advice on what could cause this that could be minor?

dammit, how much will that cost me? I think I know someone that can fix it, I just need parts whenever.

If it is just the clutch springs(as 91stxman said) then you would need a new clutch. Easy fix, Advanced, Autozone, or 1sttoyotaparts.com have the parts. As for the grinding, that's usually synchros, not too easy of a fix. Try using synchromesh in the trans.

$150 for the clutch kit at Advance Auto.
Synchromesh is like $15.
