If the dealer has always maintained this and the fluid was dry or if you have not had it serviced and there is no leak at all it sounds like the fluid was never installed.It is very possible that damage may have occurred in the gear box but its hard to say for sure without having it inspected fully.
You might let the dealer know that the fluid was empty and you had to fill it up all the way and that there is no leaks and that you believe it was never full when you purchased it.They may be able to contact their rep to get authorization to inspect the gear box and repair as needed under warranty.I would at least have it inspected in either case to see if any damage is present.

That is very possible.It may just have needed the fluid topped off but at least the manufacturer knows that there was an issue here so if anything were to occur at some point soon that needed repaired or replaced they may cover it under warranty.
