No that should not trigger the oil light but is not good for the engine as it may lead to blowing seals and gaskets so you might want to correct that. Do you have or can get someone to do an oil pressure test ?

In most cases if you don't hear any engine noises such as knocking it will be the oil pressure sending unit but always play it safe and do a pressure test first. I will check back with your results tomorrow and help you further if need be.
