    Warm car up,park on level ground,find lever marked bonnet release (use manual if unsure) Release and lift bonnet.Find dipstic (manual again for location) Remove said dipstic, clean off oil on end of dipstic,refit dipstic,remove and check to see if oil is up to the level mark on the dipstic. If not put more oil in and recheck.If oil level is okay possible error with dis info.
    OR if you are female drive into main audi dealer smile sweetly act blonde,then ask them to check it.
    OR give up driving

    lol, bit of Friday humour, sounds like you have a problem with the dis info if its close or above the full mark . I always check mine after a few minutes of running the engine.
