chain change

Hi guys
I already have 19500 km with my bike (bought Sept 2018) and I think I will change it soon.
When do you change yours,is there any recommended mileage when you have to do this?I did not find anything in the owner;s manual.Is my first bike,as a note
Thank you!

Here's a handy way to see how worn you chain is: pull rearward on a link that is in the 3 o'clock position on the rear sprocket (directly behind the rear axle). If you can kink the chain away from the sprocket at this location, then the space between adjacent links has grown longer than the distance between neighboring sprocket teeth. If it's as bad as the attached diagram, you need to replace the chain as well as both sprockets.
