You really need to get the dipstick sorted (if there's really something wrong with it) or figure out how it works.

I doubt half a litre is going to do much harm. You might be a little over the max mark on the dipstick, but then again I've often had my car returned from dealer servicing with the oil level slightly above max. Though if it was slightly above max to start out with, then that would be marginally more worrying.

Real disaster stories tend to be associated with serious overfilling. Personally, I wouldn't lose any sleep over an extra half litre, but other people might have different ideas.
