So it could be a bad oil pump or excessive bearing clearances in the engine, as you didn’t state engine mileage. I would have a analog oil pressure gauge installed so you can see the actual pressure from cold to operational temperature. If the pressure starts low then it most likely the oil pump, if the oil pressure starts out normal then starts to drop as it warms up then it’s bearings.
