No need to add more.. wait until you will do a proper service and change the seals as well.

I assumed that you were lost very few oil. I don't know a way to measure how much oil leak out so I don't know how much you should put in.
Some ppl says that you can put a bar and measure the level of the oil but I don't know how accurate this is.

If the suspension don't feel right, then it will be better to change the oils with new ones. You gonna need new seals as well.

If someone else knows a way how to check the oil level in your forks that would be great cos I don't.
