No oil on dipstick does nor necessarily mean completely empty, but yes, far too low. If you have it on the top 'full' mark and 2 weeks, and say, 500 miles (?) later it does not show on dipstick you are losing oil from either a leak or burning it. Do you have drops or puddles on ground? Any white/bluish smoke from exhaust?
