Try this code snippet:

main();
function main(){
    app.findGrepPreferences = null;
    app.changeGrepPreferences = null;
    app.findChangeGrepOptions.includeMasterPages = true;
    app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat="~N";
    var FindGrep=app.activeDocument.findGrep();
    for(i=0; i<FindGrep.length; i++){
        var item = FindGrep;
        var page = item.parentTextFrames[0].parentPage;
        if(page != null){
            item.contents = page.name;
            }
        }
    app.findGrepPreferences = null;
    app.changeGrepPreferences = null;
    }
