GIF can only have 256 different colors total in the picture (shared among all the frames in an animation). If you work in RGB mode, try to convert manually to Indexed (Image/mode/indexed) and make sure it uses the Floyd-Steinberg dithering or its derivative. Then save to GIF (but keep the XCF as RGB).

RE: Need help with wavy colour gif
Use Image/Mode/Indexed, this changes the image to indexed and you have more choices that when saving as GIF directly, and you can undo if you don't like the result. Then save as GIF directly, no more indexing question will be asked.
