Playback cutting out issue

I am working on a new MacBook Pro with OS Monterey, 12.2 with Audacity v. 3.1.3. I keep having a problem with playback of my (mono) voice over track. Every so often the playback will have this little skip, like the sound has cut out, but when I go back and play it again, it is absolutely fine. It’s not happening in the recording, but just in the initial playback. It’s not my headphones, as I hear it through speakers as well. Any ideas what can be going on?

Do you charge your laptop while recording?

Sometimes the charger is plugged in.
