Sounds like you have low oil pressure, I would make sure you have a good oil pump and are using correct grade/wight of oil. To check the main bearings and rod bearings, you'll need to remove the oil pan and remove the bearings caps and use plastigauge. Here is how it works: http://www.plastigaugeusa.com/how.html
