I am using a digital voltmeter to measure the electrode potential of a Daniell cell, and I was told that the electrode potential was the first reading... but it kind of fluctuates initially... I don’t know how to describe it but the reading goes crazy at first and then settles down and starts to increase a bit.

Is this normal? How should I be recording this?

This is what the voltmeter I am using looks similar to, by the wayenter link description here
