Default oil level different on each side of dipstick

Hey guys, I have a 2012 STi limited (left hand drive) and have noticed ever since i got it that whenever i check the oil level in the morning when the engine is cold, on level ground, it is at a different mark on one side of the stick versus the other. pulling it out, the driver's side of the stick measures about half way between the high and low holes in the stick (with very thin streaks along the edges of the stick up to the top notch), and the passenger side is exactly at the full mark.

what gives? it's like the dipstick is going into the oilpan at an angle or something.
