Default Oil pressure issue

Well the tempature has finally dropped into the 30's around here, and my oil pressure guage has started acting up. When I first start the truck when not warmed up, the oil pressure guage doesn't move. And then the "check guages" light comes on. So I shut the truck off really quick, and figured try it again. started it up again, and the oil pressure shot right up to normal. Now every time I start the truck if cold, I have to start it, shut if off, then restart to get the guage to read pressure. It doesn't seem like there is a problem, other than the guage itself. But I dont want to let it run and find out there is an actual problem. Once the guage reads pressure, it never fluctuates or drops again until the truck sits for a while. Was just curious if this is a comon problem, or if anyone knows what the cause of this could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Ian-
