Sounds about normal based on the information you provided.

I agree, however if this is unusual for your car I'd be asking questions too. As long as the pressure isn't getting stupidly high and keeps dropping back to normal it shouldn't cause any issues.
When was the last time it had an oil and filter change? Might be a build up of crap in the filter?

Apart from the gauge doing that are there any other issues that started at the same time? Any oil spewing out where it shouldn't be? (1st place I'd look would be timing cover near the pwr steering pump) Strange engine rattles? (timing chain) Burning oil smell or blowing smoke?
If it's only the gauge causing concern could be that it or the sender in the block is faulty.
