engine oil dipstick handle broke off

Hi Guys! I cant believe it broke off after I nudged it. But anyway, I checked my oil level through the instrument panel display and it said oil i.0 . Does that mean my oil level is ok? The manual does not explain this, it just said it might display the following:

oil i.0
oil -1.0q
oil -1.5q
oil -2q

Im assuming if you get a minus sign then you add a quart and if it says -2 you add 2 quarts. So if any of the veterans can answer my question, it would be greatly appreciated. As to MB, shame on your oil dipstick supplier. LOL

On 99 ML i remember touching the dipstick about 3 times. It never needs oil between the changes.

does that mean i have a leak if i added up around 4 quarts within the 10K miles range? didn't notice anything leaking though..
