I believe the problem is that the sensor activates at about the halfway point on the dipstick. Take the oil to the upper mark and all will be well.

Folks just checked bottom in driveway for any spills and could see a small dark patch....is it normal or there might be a leakage ? Fluids are fine so far...had only topped up oil.

Not normal - did you perhaps spill some when topping up? Otherwise, it would seem you have a leak.
Its a tiny 1 inch mark on the road(driveway is outside)...no overspill during topping...will put some papers below and see whats going on ..cheers...

If it has the undertray on it would be a good idea to remove it so that you can see and clean everything that has any signs of oil on it as it will be everywhere. The steering system can leak as well. Once you have a oil free underside you have more chance of spotting the culprit and fixing it.

No undertray....its very small amount which is making spots....all fluid levels are ok as i told...its in the middle front...

Coolant should not drip at any time. The system is pressurised by the heat, so coolant will be forced out through any small hole until the system has cooled, and the pressure gone. Of course, it could still drip because of gravity.

An issue perhaps,but not one to over worry your head about.I would have a good check of your coolant hoses for any signs of a leak,plus a good check around the radiator,you say your coolant level is not dropping so if there is a slight leak it must be very slight.Just keep a check on it for the next few days.If you are unduly worried take it into a garage and ask to put a pressure test on it.That will show up even a very small leak.

It has a pressure test every time the engine reaches full temp so after your next good run pop the bonnet whilst engine is still running and inspect every coolant component and hoses diligently for leaks. Take your time looking not just glancing. The header tank is not too full I hope.
