No. The priming sugar will add a tiny amount of fermentables, but they will ferment out. That's what produces the carbonation. The FG you have when you go to bottle it will be the FG.
Why is the FG at 1.013 lower than you were hoping for? For a Belgian, it's actually a bit higher than I'd think.
If you leave it in the fermenter for at least two more weeks, it'll clear right up and give you a nice clear beer with less sediment in the bottle. Oh, you'll still have some yeast in the bottom, but not that much. Anything still in suspension in the beer (protein haze, yeast, etc) will fall out. If it's in the fermenter, it'll go to the bottom of the fermenter. If it's in the bottle, it'll go to the bottom of the bottle.
