If you are using regular oil not synthetic then you may have a sludge issue. many VW Audi had the problem You oil pump screen may be clogged try a couple cans of cleaner change oil use synthetic or synthetic blend. may do this 2-3 times other wise drop the oil pan and clean pan & screen if needed. I do not think it is bearings unless you have 200K+ miles Good luck
