With that little info hard to say.
Is this a finished wall, bare studs?
What type or counter top is it?

In most cases you set the countertop again the wall and just scribe the top and sand off the high places with a belt sander.
Easyer then removing all the sheetrock, shimming the studs.

#1 rule in home remodeling....."No wall is straight".

If your using one of those vanitys with a sink that has a built in back splash and the wall pushes out....then you do what Joe said....of the wall goes the other way....caulk is your friend.
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
