Hello and Welcome to the forums.

 

That message is part of the onboard diagnostics - part of the built in motor oil timer (oil change indicator). Comes on roughly every 5000 miles or so, depending on how the car is driven - sounds like the oil was changed a bit earlier than scheduled and the maintenance timer was not reset.

 

In the owner's manual - there is a description that walks you through how to reset the maintenance lamp - basically a series of odometer pushes and ignition key cycling.
