Nissan Altima 2002 (auto) - RPM drops and oil pressure light comes on

Hi,
I have a 2002 Nissan Altima. Recently the RPM drops when the car is stopped or idling really low (~550). However, when I'm driving it's
fine. Also, the oil pressure light comes on during the RPM drop phase.
Any idea what this could be?
Thanks Maz

Have you checked the oil level?
