Default different type of question about oil pan

i live in an area where its stop and go traffic and what ive noticed is that my oil gauge goes past mid level and then when stopped at a light goes below level now. my question is that with that type of area i live in should i still get the oil pan welded if the oil deprives the pan of it for a second then drops back down in it?

Doesn't sound like a pan issue in this case.

Are you sure its not not RPM related?
