low oil pressure warning on start up

I have a 03 Zo6. When I crank it up especially in the morning, the oil pressure takes a few seconds to move upwards. I get the low pressure and check gauges, warning lights. Pressure seems normal other than that. I haven't heard any strange noises during startup. Should this be concerning? The oil pressure sensor has been replaced. Thanks.

I just had the same issue. A new oil pump fixed the issue. Don't wait around to replace it. Mine had a flattened o-ring where the pickup tube goes to the oil pump.
