yes it's normal

all cars with a mechanical oil pump does this, it's controlled by engine rpms so the faster the engine goes the faster the pump spins

and in the middle doesn't necessarily mean it's got the right pressure, the engine can operate in a range depending upon rpms and load on the pump due to oil viscosity
