I want to include a PDF file in my LaTeX-Document, which I compile with pdflatex.

Using width=\linewidth, I still get an overfull hbox. What am I doing wrong?

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{Test.pdf}
\end{document}

Warning: Overfull \hbox (15.0pt too wide) in paragraph

You're not taking into account \parindent (the indentation of the first line of paragraphs not immediately after a sectional unit). Add \noindent before \includegraphics; a simple example

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[showframe]{geometry}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth,height=3cm]{example-image-a}

\vspace{1cm}

\noindent\includegraphics[width=\linewidth,height=3cm]{example-image-a}
\end{document}

enter image description here

The geometry package with its showframe option was only used to have a frame showing the margins for reference.
