wondering if it's bad for my gallbladder to only be working at 7%?

Possibly: Anything less than about 30% is considered abnormal. If you were having symptoms that could be attributed to your gallbladder, it would be recommended to remove the gallbladder.

Yes: If you are having pain in the upper abdomen, particularly after eating a fatty meal, get the gallbladder removed. If no problems at all it's likely safe to watch.
