There is a 50mm macro lens produced, but it's not the 50mm 1.8 mk2.
The thing about the 50mm 1.8 mk2, is, it's just really good value for money, don't don't buying it thinking you'll have a great lens, you just have an f1.8 lens that's great for the money, and it can produce excellent sharp results with reasonable clarity definition. It is of course plastic (it's £100 after all) and it doesn't have IS (that would add another £50).
One thing's for certain, If you're going to spend £100 on any lens, it has to be 50mm 1.8 mk2 :-)
As for macro, save up and buy a proper macro lens, or, buy the Canon extension tubes 12mm or 25mm, these fit between the lens and the camera body. The lenses that screw to the front of your kit lens are OK, but, really, they're just OK......
