Diesel oil pressure guage question

I just realized that when I turn my key on, my oil pressure needle immediately reads "3" (maximum) and then when I start the engine, it
stays there and doesn't move! It drops to back down to zero when I turn the key off.
Any ideas on whether this is a gauge or sender issue?
