Exclamation 2010 Cobalt Lt 2.2 Weird Noise and Oil

Hey guys, the car has about 24.5k miles on it. I changed my oil today with 5 qts,but the dipstick reading is at the very bottom. Which i thought was very weird. Should i add another qt, or take it for a drive and then recheck?

My second question seems to be a popular one but i havent seen any answers for the 2.2 yet. Since ive owned the car ive heard a light ticking noise coming from the head, is that normal? I read that its normal for the 2L.

Bonus question: When i put the car in reverse i sometime hear a click, is that normal?

Thanks in advance.

you need to check the oil when the car has been sitting. leave it and check it later.

the tick is your injectors and/or lifters. not a big deal.

click is the gear changing

Yup, newer oil pans hold 5L. I know this because I went from about 4.73L with my old oil pan to 5L with my new one. Let it sit so all the oil runs to the pan
