Default start up oil pressure

my 2014 wrx Sat for maybe 4 days for the first time ever. once I started it back up the oil pressure was only at 75 instead of the normal 95-98 area, checked oil ok. figured maybe the sendergoong bad. once warmed up its stay at 12-10 where it has been since day 1. a few days go buy and I have to fill up so I check the oil again now where the cap screws into the full tube I have a perfect ring of milky oil where the bottom of the oil cap sits inside, oil level barely changed. pressure is still now staying at 75 on cold start ups coolant level at prefect level when warmed up and just a little less than halfway between full and add when cold. could the turbo have mixed these two together? car has not overheated or even gone remotely past halfway no matter the driving conditions. ordered a new sending unit as well and checked Frame grounds for all the gauges and cleaned

What brand/weight of oil and how long has it been since your last oil change?

Could be just condensation as far as the milky appearance.
If your gonna have mixing of coolant and oil would most likely be a bad head gasket and it would be more apparent.
What brand gauge?

was 5w30 amsoil xl 4000 miles since last change. changed today to t6 read good things about it. when removed the cap today it was nice and clean where the film was. maybe just a fluke or didn't put it on tight enough last time for the discolored ring at fill tube. will see tonight when I leave for work if the oil pressure goes back up. new sending unit should be here tomorrow as well
