In brief: Hard to know.
Both your family history and bcp use could have contributed to gallstone formation--it's hard to know which was more important.
Regardless, you are joining a very large group of people who have gallstones. More important than the stones is whether they are causing any pain--"silent" gallstones require no further treatment.
