nope. Do not worry at all. Under load you get what is called V-droop. This, while a pain for some higher overclocks will not hurt the system(Intel in fact says it should be there). As long as its stable, do not worry.

And anything less that .05 volts is pretty good.

I think it's a bug that gives you a low voltage when your voltage is pretty high.

Not a bug. It's called voltage droop. Google it.
