oil level indicator. ?????

My oil level indicator has not changed for the last 2,000-3,000 miles. I drive hard so before, I would add a quart every 2,000 miles. Before my first oil change, when i turned on the car I had to wait like 6 miles before it would give me a reading, now after a minute of it being on it gives me a reading. how can i know if it is broken? will it give me any error codes? thanks

But do you add the oil because the indicator tells you to or do you add it simply because you drive hard?
