At least you know what is going on. I doubt there is any easy way to adjust the light to turn on when the tank is lower.

Sounds normal to me. Sometimes the indicator/warning light is on at 3 gallons. I wouldn't worry about it.

Better to have it come on a little sooner than a little too late! I would leave it alone. Did the level indicator come with any calibration instructions? If so, follow them or call the manufacturer for help.
