You would want to get someone to plug in an external oil pressure gauge just to rule out a problem with the gauge itself or the sensor. Is there there any rattle from the bottom end or anything? Are you using the right type of oil?

It's fine, oil gets thinner as it gets hotter. As long as while you're driving the pressure comes back up.
