Looking at my coolant level and..

was wondering if this is normal level? I know it says its below minimum but does that really matter that much or should i top it off?..
Also while talking on this subject, is a 190 Tstat worth getting?

I believe the operators manual that came with the truck new will explain the coolant level very well.
