Default Checking FG

I have a 6 (us)gallon better bottle, there is about 5.5 gallons in it fermenting, if I pop the cork to check the FG, for the next 3 days, am I going to suffer from oxidation in my beer?

The CO2 is heavier than the other air so it just kind of sits there like an invisible blanket.
