oil pressure fluctuating with revs

started smelling a burning smell in the car today and wasnt sure that it was the car or not. i started watching the oil pressure gauge and noticed that when i was at a stand still, it was slightly below half, and would fluctuate when i revved the engine. ive never really noticed this before, and i jsut thought when the engine was warm it stayed at above 3/4s on the gauge. is this normal and i just never noticed it before?
