gauge could be going bad , you can run a manual oil pressure test out at the high pressure pump where sending unit is just to make sure base oil pressure is good , if thats shows fine which if its running should be , either gauge or sending unit could be going bad

Mine started doing that not too long ago, the factory guage read right there on the N in normal, run a test and found the guage was bad so I just installed an aftermarket oil pressure guage and all is well.

Yep, those oil gauges suck. Very common for them to fail.

Disconnect the oil pressure sensor and see what it does, if it stays pegged than it is most likely the guage, if it changes it might be the sensor
