Low oil indicator

Hey everyone! I have a 2016 Traverse LS and tonight while sitting in a parking lot I had the add oil warning come on. I thought this was weird since I’m not quite ready for an oil change yet. I checked the dip stick and it was clearly showing oil in the engine. After restarting the car again the warning was gone. Is this something I should be concerned about or was this maybe a one time fluke? The warning never came back on during the drive home either.

Was the oil at a nice level on the dipstick? or on the low end.


Though- I thought the Traverse or was it the Equinox that didnt have a low oil message warning? I May be confusing myself.

The oil on the dipstick had plenty on it. no where near low. The "engine oil low add oil" comes up on the DIC for the traverse. Though I am not sure about the equinox.
