LOW OIL PRESSURE WARNING LIGHT.

2001 Jaguar Vanden Plas • 70,000 miles

My low oil pressure warning light came on and I took the car to the dealer for a look see. He told me that the oil pump/filter were ok but that he had to put 5 Qts of oil into the engine to top it off.
Being down 5 qts out of 8 makes me nervous and I feel as though that's unusual. I'm within the oil change mileage range still, there's no oil puddles underneath the engine, and I haven't noticed any smoke when the car is running.
What's happening?

Have the oil pressure checked-could be just the oil pressure sending unit is defective or its clogged-up somewhere
