Oil level light came on tonight on my way home and I checked it manually and it is indeed near the MIN marker on the stick. Oil still looks pretty clean, I had it serviced in August, and have put maybe 4k miles on the car.

Simple Answer is to just add Oil, but why would this come up all of a sudden? I haven't had any oil leaking in my garage. where did it go?

If you haven't checked the oil level since you had it changed, it's possible that they didn't put enough oil in it from the onset. Perhaps the tech forgot to run the engine a bit before checking the oil level (new oil filter/housing ends up absorbing a fair amount of oil).

it could have leaked the car has undercarriage cover so you wont see any oil on the ground
maybe the oil drain bolt was not tight

1qt per 1000 miles is the acceptable consumption. such is the spec for just about every car on the road.
correct fill is halfway between min and max.
