Advice Needed - Low Oil Level After Only 4,000 Miles

The title of this thread pretty much sums it up. I have a new 335i that I bought less than 4 months ago. I periodically check the oil level using I-Drive just for the heck of it and noticed about a month ago that the level was getting low. Today, I fell below the min level for the first time and received a notification to add a quart of oil.

I am wondering if this should raise a bigger concern. The car has 4,000 miles on it. Im a bit shocked that my oil level is already at an unsafe amount especially if the recommended interval is 1yr/15,000 miles. Does anyone know why this could be? I have never tracked the car. I do however sit in 20mph or less traffic mon-fri but always open her up on the weekends (after waiting for optimal oil temp of course)

I will be taking my car in to the dealership to have them add oil this week. While I am there, is there anything I should have them specifically check?
