My car burns almost no oil between changes - I do changes every 3-5K miles. The light probably does not come on until you are 1 quart down from full.

The big question is when was your last change? If 7K miles then you are probably fine. If you are under 5K miles since the last change I would look for a leak - check valve covers, front timing cases, vacuum pump on front of engine etc..
