I would check the oil level after driving the car for an hour or so. Often times after I change my oil and put in the proper amount 6.5 quarts(or 6.9L) the oil level will read low(just like in your photo) when the engine is warning up. IF I drive the car longer for 30 minutes to an hour... it will read full then.

Doing lots of short trips can also cause the oil level to read low.Short trips allow water/moister in the oil causing a false reading.
