What causes cramping in the abdomen?

Last night I woke up with a pain in my upper right abdomen, right below my ribcage. The pain has continued throughout the day and is now slightly worse and moving down towards my lower abdomen. Would this most likely be galbladder related or appendix related? Also, I am a 25 year old woman on my period, but I have never experienced cramping this high.

Hi
The site of your pain points towards a problem in gsll bladder
A kidney stone can also cause pain on this site
Appendicular pain felt initially around umbilicus and later on in right lower quadrant of abdomen.
Au ultra sonography will give more clear idea
