First of all you should talk to or email the department you wish to transfer into and ask them if you can transfer. They may then advise you of the next step (if they have spaces) or might suggest you contact student services to request a transfer form.

Your personal tutor should also be able to advise you about how to transfer - it's not uncommon and the sooner the better if you want to transfer.

If you want to change you need to get moving on that right away.

A university I'm familiar with has a deadline for course changes of "the end of the second week of teaching".

But even if a longer deadline is available, the longer you leave it the more teaching you'll miss. So you need to keep that time as short as possible.

Bear in mind that there may not be spaces available on the course you want to change to, so you should consider what you'll do if you can't change course.
