In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
