Default oil leak?

Hey guys. Few months back did all the seals when I did my timing belt. Just did the o ring on the oil cooler 1000 back. Checked oil it was like 50 percent full. Is it really possible I burned that much off? No hard driving either. I use rotella 5w40. I don't see any visible leaks so I'm left Co fused at this point.

Btw. No blue smoke or any weird smoke of the exaust. Just thought I'd add that too

Thanks

You check the oil level before you primed the system + ran it?

Top it off and make sure you get an accurate reading and try again. I bet there is an error somewhere.

Always checked it after I let it sit overnight. I topped it off. It's stayed full now for two days. I suppose I'll keep an eye on it. Not too sure where it could be leaking from
