Depends: Punctuate stones in pelvis are phleboliths and basically meaningless. Your cbd is a diff issue. The cbd can get distended with age but at your age that's to big. Also, if your gallbladder has been removed it's not uncommon to see the cbd get dilated. If not, you should have this finding further evaluated. A GI doctor can certainly help with that.
