Unless your oil pressure is dropping too low, this is not a problem nor is it unusual. On a cold engine, upon first start-up, the engine goes from 0 oil pressure to a high oil pressure, because the oil is cold and thicker. As the engine and oil heat up, the oil becomes thinner and the pressure goes down. This is normal.
