In brief: Check blood pressure

The most likely answer is that your blood pressure is falling when you stand up suddenly and takes a few seconds to equilibrate.
This can be easily checked by checking the pressure lying, sitting and then standing. It can be a sign of a medical problem so should be checked by your regular md.

In brief: Low blood pressure

Usually this symptom is a sign of low blood pressure or low blood flow.
It is part of a syndrome known as orthostatic hypotension. You should consult with your regular family care doctor, or internist.
