Oil Fill Question

My car has about 4800 miles on it, so 3600 since the initial service. The oil indicator shows half full, it started at the top arrow. The car says it is "OK".

I decided to stop by the dealer to have them top it off. The mechanic seemed concerned about adding oil because he didn't want to overfill (ie didn't seem to trust the electronic gauge). So he only adds half a quart.

I leave and check the oil a few additional times - still half full.

Do I need to add more oil?
