Well that's a tough one. Obviously your gall bladder could be a problem as this is the most common cause of pain in the right side of the abdomen under the rib. Without other symptoms like fever, vomiting, or diarrhea it's very hard to guess further than this. If your pain is persistent or recurrent you should see your physician as labs and imaging studies might be needed to assess the cause of this pain. Be well.
