Default oil pressure

Ive been having a problem with my oil pressure for a while now. after running for about 20 minutes or so and come do a stop my oil pressure will drop and as soon as i hit the gas again it goes right back up to normal. i just changed the oild and ran a 5 minute engine flush to see if there was a clog in the line or the screen but this morning on my way home from work it did it again. this time it would drop and go up a quarter of the way then drop and back up then it stayed down so i popped the hood to see if there was a leak or any noise but i had nothing so i pulled the dip stick and put my finger over the hole for a second and took it off and checked the gauge and it was back up to mormal. i dunno if that was related to me taking out the dipstick or what but at this point im stuck and needing so advice

The oil pressure will drop with RPM..usual rule is 10psi for each 1,000 RPM. My 2010 idles at about 18 psi and runs at about 43 during highway travel.

I would change the sender as a precaution.
