Have it checked out ASAP cause you don't wait to loose an engine, now it could just be the oil pressure sender but don't take chances.

one of 2 things Oil Pressure sending unit is going bad or the Oil Pump is worn. If it's the oil pump that needs to be replaced, I would suggest an high volume oil pump. A little more money, but gets that oil moving every where.
