Those gauges can be very inaccurate. I'd slave in a cheapy mechanical gauge and see what oil pressure you have at various RPMs and then make a mental note on where your factory gauge reads at that same RPM.

General rule of thumb.... gauges read at the mid piont for normal runnng
Yes do as suggested above, calibrate you gauge with a known gauge that reads correct.
And do the same with your temp gauges

Oh yes - just disconnect the line at the gauge and start the engine :D

J/K !!!!
The air won't hurt anything and will probably even work its way out over the years as most systems seem to do.
