If there was no smoke, pre-oil change- you have just overfilled it most likely.

If this is the case, drain some oil right away. The oil will become entrained w/air and become frothy. This can kill the bearings, and generally cause trouble.

according to the dummystick it's not overfull, but I will remove some and see what happens.
Before you do that, if you are sure you drained all the oil, and the car was level, you should know by how many quarts you added if it has too much. Have to include the filter, also.

I'd hate to have you remove too much oil and have problems due to that, so investigate a little more before you take oil away.

Worst case- drain the oil into a clean container and add again by the quart.

Depending on what engine you have (which is what???), it can vary as to how much to use.

Would it be possible that it's burning off some gunk
Is this a new car/engine- to you?

Ordinarily, no "gunk" will burn off, due to an oil change.
