check oil level....and check to see the quality the oil is in. erratic oil pressure can mean ALOT of different things...clogged screen, clogged filter, bad oil, not enough oil, bad or dieing pump, defective oil filter, the system isnt completely sealed, and im sure theres others im forgetting...but of course just looking at the level and quality of the oil is always the easiest and first step. let us know what it looks like :P
