Question: Go to the doctor complaining of acid and burning sensation in stomach. Med with antibiotic, prilosec and tums.

Thanks for posting your query.
Your ultrasound scan findings are suggestive of a stone or calculus in the gall bladder without any associated infection in the area.
The h.pylori test indicates that you have suffered from the h.pylori infection of the stomach in recent past as IgG antibody is in detectable range.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
