Burning Oil?

Yesterday I changed my oil after my oil life indicator said 21%. I had Penzoil Platinum Synthetic 5w30. I noticed I only had about 3 quarts of used oil when I had originally put in 5 quarts. I do have a bad thermostat and/or seal thats causing me to drive at 160F in freezing cold temperature. Is this why I'd burn oil? Dirty CAI filter?
