The BMW 525I doesn't have a dip stick. The oil level is checked using the "i" menu. Select service status and from there you should choose "check engine oil level".

When is the last time you had your cooling system services. It could mean several things, but without more information, its nearly impossilbe to diagnose.
Could be a faulty thermostat.

Could be a vapor lock where the system was not run with the cap off after adding anti-freeze/water mixture caused by too much air in the system.
