In brief: No.

Gb polyps are usually incidental findings on ultrasound that require no treatment unless they are >1cm. However, a gallstone adherent to the wall of the gb can resemble a polyp; therefore, you may have gallstones.
I advise you to see a general surgeon: if your symptoms are classic for gallbladder disease, further testing or surgery may be indicated.
