low oil pressure

I have a 2001 7.3. Sometimes when I start my truck the oil pressure gauge reads normal but other times it reads low and the sensor light on the instrument panel comes on, but it runs just fine. Is this just the instrument cluster or something else?

you can rig up a cheapo tester, using a #4orb, at the allen bolt plug, atop the hpop. If it is the lpop, the melling m208 is a great upgrade.
