does whey protein help me gain muscles?

Any form of protein will be used by your body to build or repair muscle. Protein isn't used by your body the same way carbs and fat are. That noted, just consuming protein won't build muscle. Exercise creates the tiny tears in the muscle fiber that get built up when they repair.
No one needs protein shakes or special foods. You can get all your protein and other nutrients from normal foods. You also don't need to consume protein immediately after a workout. If having a drink or shake is convenient for you, great. If not, skip it. Just be aware of the full list of ingredients, particularly sugars.

No. Just Fat, without exercise.
And when you exercise, you can eat anything.
Don't waste money on supplements, vitamins, or other Snake-Oil. Consult your physician and a LICENSED Dietitian.
