In the past, Honda has recommended leaving the factory fill oil in for the full duration of an oil change interval as determined by the maintenance minder.
Honda also recommends that the oil be changed at least once a year, regardless of the reading on the oil life display.
My inclination would be to wait (about two more months) until the oil life display counts down to 15%.
At that point the maintenance minder codes will prompt you for the oil change and whatever other maintenance might also be due.
Likely you'll get a code for a tire rotation and, if you have AWD/4WD, possibly a code for a rear differential fluid change.
If you do decide to have the oil changed now, make sure that the dealer only resets the maintenance minder for the oil change.
Otherwise you may upset the schedule for all of the other maintenance items.
