What was the motor oils weight, viscosity you used?

My 2019 has factory oil in it & less then 2000 miles on the odometer.
On start up, the engine sounds different after it runs for about 25 seconds. It gets quieter as the oil reaches all the engine parts.
Zero viscosity @ startup, can't be a good thing, is my thinking?

I was using Subaru oil and filter previously.

The noise will disappear once the weather is warm. It only appears doing the fall/winter time of the year when the engine is cold.

I checked the manual and it’s wrong. I’m left wondering what I need to believe a piece of paper or my own eyes.
I have changed the oil at least 10 times since the car was new.
5 us quarts = the oil line

I've been doing my own oil on a 2018. I've always put in 4.7 ish quarts and it lands in the middle of the line.

Ill see if i can overfill it a bit. My noise only happens in the cold parts of the year though and goes away once the engine warms.
