The amount of DME used to prime isn't enough to enhance body. Maltodextrin would do the job better.

Is your beer carbonated? Uncarbonated beer tastes...well...flat. I'd just let it go. If its still light bodied once its carbed, adjust the recipe.

No - just moved it to secondary after about 12 days in primary. I am not sure when to go bottling it...

It will be hard to really judge the body then. I'd leave it in the secondary for 1.5-2 more weeks, then bottle as normal.
