How about the bottom bolt on the oil filter cover. That bolt can strip, causing the filter cover to slightly leak. One thing you can check, also check under the motor/frame. Take off belly pan,. See if it's clean.

This could be normal as the oil is stored in the frame, as well as the engine. As you refilled it it would read high, until all of those lines and compartments are re-filled with oil which will case a drop in oil level on your dipstick. If it's low, I would refill it and continue to monitor it. If it keeps dropping, you're using oil.
