Hy e. Thank you for the query. You cannot gain muscles with powders or pills. Developing muscles needs a good workout and healthy diet. The moment you start going to the gym, whatever is your workout, also does not justify taking a protein supplement. Proteins are not stored in the body like other nutrients. Your body will utilize only as much protein it needs and the rest will be broken down for energy purpose which is it's secondary function; main being building/repairing muscles. Depending on the exercise (ie. Strength training/cardio or activities like gymnastics or weight lifting) your body's needs for proteins varies. Although whey is natural and the most easily and quickly assimilated form of protein - it is not needed to be exclusively included in your diet. You have to have a balanced healthy protein rich diet for even the supplement to be utilised. Protein need totally depends on your present food intake & activity levels and should not randomly be added to your diet.
