oil pressure? - SOLVED!

Just finished replacing my head gaskets and replaced the timing belt and resealed the oil pump. To check for oil pressure i heard you crank the engine until the oil pump light goes out on the dashboard. Ive cranked my engine for a few minutes and the oil pump light remains on. I also removed the oil filter and it has no oil in it. Would this confirm i have no oil pressure?

Just ended up starting my car and the oil pressure light went out after a few seconds guess the starter doesnt rotate the engine fast enough to build up enough pressure to cause the light to go out.

Did you reconfirm the oil level on the dipstick?
