Question Is This Oil Usage Normal for a N52 with 10K Miles?

My 09' 328ix has only 10k miles on it. Yesterday, for the 1st time, the oil symbol/chime popped up on the dash when shutting off the car.

When checking the level, it was at 'Min' and stated to add +1 qt.

Is this normal oil usage for these cars?

Should I be concerned and take into stealership?

There are no oil leaks that I can see under the car (although with all the underbody panels an oil leak would go unnoticed), and no visible signs of oil leakage when viewed from top.

I've owned a ton of cars thru my years, and have never had to add oil at such a low mileage value on any of them.

I do check my oil from time to time, and when last checked, the level showed approximately 80-90% of the way to 'Max' on the gauge.
