bring it back to whomever did the oil change and demand that they reset it properly. or google for the reset procedure and DIY.
its not an issue with the car, whoever reset it f'ed it up.

Apparently, you did not correctly reset the computer for both time and CBS. After a reset, your mileage countdown should start around 15.5k and the time should be 2 years.
