you either have oil spots where it is parked or blue smoke coming out the tailpipe it's going somewhere , check the oil more often , what grade oil are you using is it the same as printed on the filler cap ?

to start with the oil pump needs oil to pump, you either have a leak or the engine is burning it. Do you change your oil every 5,000K. even a new car to burn 1 liter is exceptable, Either way you need to be checking your oil level and keep oil in it or you will be looking at a engine replacement.
