Started truck,the oil pressure light lid & needle stayed at 0 for about two mins on 2000 Ford F-150

After 2 mins the light went off and the gage went back to normal. Also I am hearing a winding sound from the engine, like a pully is going out? I stop driving the truck as i don't want the engine to freeze on me. Do you think the oil pump is going out and where is the pump located? Thanks for any help

Iwould check the oil pressure with a gauge
