Take it back to the oil change place...

Start by asking what grade of oil did they put in the car, it's probably too thick (heavy), there's also a pretty good chance they're using cheap filters as well.

When the engine is cold the oil is thicker, the pressure is higher - if it goes too high the pressure relief valve opens, yours could be stuck, but if it is, why wasn't the problem apparent before the oil change.

Common if the old gasket remained on the block...double gasket will not hold pressure..

Running the engine with this issue could cost you mains....
