In brief: May contribute
Large amounts of creatinine may lead to relative dehydration, which in turn can lead to stone formation.
Drink plenty of water if you choose to take creatine.

In brief: Perhaps
I've seen patients who develop protein "stones" from high protein diets due to lack of adequate water intake so if you are using supplements i would recommend making sure an adequate amount of fluid is also being ingested.
