All because its not leaking doesnt mean its not burning oil, put oil in it until the full mark before driving it again. DO NOT DRIVE WITH LOW OIL!

    The oil went somewhere, if its not leaking, then it is burning a little oil. It's probably not serious, but you will need to keep a check on it from here on out. All mechanical parts will wear down, so eventually all engines will burn oil once their rings/valves/ect, get some miles on them.

Something must be staying on or somehow draining the battery with the car off. Check to make sure lights aren't staying on, check the map lights, dome light, visor lights etc. Did you recently install any aftermarket electronic parts?
