does it mean that my monitor needs calibration?

YES

Is an uncalibrated monitor the only reason for this problem...

NO

I am ordering a monitor calebrater sooooooon.

Don't do that. Purchase a calibration device instead. I recommend the X-Rite i1 Display Pro.

But want to know if there is other factors that contribute s to this problem as well

YES.

please help

  • Did you select the correct ICC profile for your paper and printer combination? 
  • Did you turn off all color management inside your printer driver?
  • Did you enable "Photoshop handles color management" inside Photoshop?

Good luck.
