Answers:    No, 7 days is inadequate treatment by any standard.
I have included a intertwine below which included the Center for Disease Control acceptable standard treatments for h pylori. There are eight acceptable regimens. The minimum time for treatment is ten days.
In addition, you mention the amoxicillin and clarithromycin, but the omeprazole or other proton pump inhibitor (such as lansoprazole) is an essential module of treatment as it drops the gastric ph sufficiently enough for the antibiotic to do its job. Pepto bismol also creates an environment in which h pylori finds it difficult to survive.
Most major is to complete the therapy EXACTLY as it is ordered, as continuing infection leaves you open to ulcerations and pain within future, and in the long term, gastric cancer.
