The I-551 stamp is a temporary indication that you have permanent residence. USCIS may have placed the stamp in your passport if you have been waiting for a permanent resident card to be issued. If you have any questions about the stamp or your immigration status, you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney.

That depends. You may have done something that may make you inadmissible, which could include criminal behavior, immigration violations, health-related issues, etc. Only an experienced immigration attorney with the benefit of a complete consultation can assess the risks of travel outside the United States.
