Hi marwa. These sounds like biliary colic but if pain radiate to back then also biliary pancreatitis could have beed developed. YOu should do lab tests and ultrasound to exlcude it. If you have any sign of gallbladder inflammation such as fever, right abdominal pain when breating deeply or vomiting you emergency surgery should be considered. If pain reduces on painkiller this is a good sign.
Wish you good health.
