Oil level rise in BMW 3 Series

My BMW 3 Series 320D 2008 (72,000 miles) has just shown an increase in the oil level over the maximum. This is on the car's computer and not the dipstick which I have yet to check. My driving consists of short journeys of 14 miles each day but have just done a longer journey when the DPF was obviously regenerating as the fuel consumption increased before returning to normal. Should I be worried at this or will it right itself or should I get the oil changed promptly.
Get it checked and get the oil and filter changed. The oil level will not only be high from the active regeneration, the oil will be contaminated with diesel.
