    More than likely 5w30, castrol edge is the best to use tbh.

    Was this a recent purchase car or a while back, if recent then did you do a level check before purchasing, reason I ask is if its dropped so quick then that's a little concerning.

    Check it on the dipstick. The oil level sensors can become faulty, it's fairly common. To reset the sensor just open the bonnet up and then close it.
