Default Low oil pressure!!??

Hey guys.
I picked my truck up monday. I love it, its amazing.
But im curiouss. My oil pressure reads really low. At idle when warm it hovers between 0 and 30. never in the red. But not far off. Once im cruising bumps to 60+

Is this anything to be worried about? I have yet to chenge the oil(which i will do in the next two or so days). BUt what you think? thanks!

mine does the same.. has since I got it, when its cold at start up the oil pressure is usually really high and once the oil warms up it gets really low when just idling, but when its idling it doesnt need much oil pressure
