Concerned about LFX Oil Pressure

I picked up my car last Thursday and only have 115 miles on it at this time, but at idle, according to the 4 pack cluster, I only have 15 psi. Oil level is fine and even at 700 rpm its back up to center, 30 psi. Should I be concerned? I'd like to hear what other LFX owners have for oil pressure at idle at operating temperature.

Only need 10 psi per 1k rpm's to keep from hurting the bearings.
You're fine. It's acting normal.
