Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer.
That is exactly what it sounds like to me. You may have some dirty lifter, you should try doing a flush on the car followed by a good oil change. You may also want to add some Lucas oil stabilizer, which will quite it down by quite a bit. Sounds like your oil retention is not very good, you may have a weak oil pump or the oil is simply too thin.
