Sounds like a failing oil pressure sender, as the engine isn't making any noises I doubt it is a oil pump failure,but if you want to be on the safe side install a manual oil pressure gauge just to verify the oil pressure is stable. Or you could take a chance and just replace the sender and see if it stops the gauge problem.
