Just add some oil as the weight will not make much of a difference as it will blend with the rest of the oil in the engine.

I would use the 10w-30 oil or even 10w-40.

Geez, Db...cool it. The worst thing that'll happen is that you'll just consume the skinny stuff, so watch the level and add 10w40 as needed, as it will probably consume 5w stuff too.
