Welcome to the forum, Alex.

Leave the drywall bare where you intend to tile. Because your tiles are marble and large, I would not use mastic. Get a good, white, modified thinset instead. Your tiles are large enough that you don't really have to mud the joints before you tile. I would tape them with an alkali-resistant mesh tape as you tile though.
