I always check my oil and visually inspect the coolant, brake fluid, battery terminals and washer fluid weekly. The transmission, power steering fluid and tire pressure monthly. I check my oil with the engine completely cold for an accurate reading.

Just to be safe, I would not drive your truck and let it sit for a few hours on level ground and let the engine cool down and preferably check the oil level when the engine is cold. You will get an accurate oil level reading. At that point add the proper oil if it is needed to bring the level in the Safe Level.
