if your gut is telling you it needs gfci protection, install one and stop worrying about it

what are they? like $12?

if that kills your bottom line, you have more serious problems
It has nothing to do with cost.. just want to use what is needed..

I'm pretty sure, based on memory, you can install a recep in a bathroom within 0.0000000000000000000000000000000001" of the tub.

If this is for a rough inspection, then line-load protect it off the GFCI you're gonna install somewhere in the bath.
