We all get a certain amount of oil mist collected in the air box, it can get worse if you have over filled the oil.

Next oil change, drain the pan let her drip dry pull filter install fresh filter and add five full quarts.

Running the engine to operational temp, shut it off & let it settle for ten minutes, then check & mark level on the DIP STICK, use this as a WARM BENCH mark for future level checks, and only top off enough as needed until the next change interval.

You might also want to do a cold level check, usually yields a bit more oil in the pan.
