    Hi I would like to create a form that gets AdWords GCID on an embedded form (prefered) or on a stand alone form (redirect to jotform) and save it on a google drive spreadsheet with the answers.

    If what you are looking for is picking up the URL of the page, it's possible by using the get form page URL widget (https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/get_form_page_url). This will allow the form to pick up the URL and its parameters and submit it with the form. 

    If what you would like is get the URL from which the user came from before reaching the form, you can instead use the Get Referrer widget (https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/get_referrer)

    Next, you can integrate your form with Google Spreadsheet if you would like the information submitted there. Please check this guide for more information: https://www.jotform.com/help/228-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Google-Spreadsheet

    But if I'm misunderstanding any part of your question, my apologies. It would be great as well to elaborate your inquiry further.

    Thanks.
