I am using a Canon 100-400mm Mk1, without a hood. I bought it used and it came without the hood. I often get my photo rejected at www.jettphotos rejected due to low contrast. Does adding a lens hood will help with contrast or not?

My accepted photos can be found here. https://www.jetphotos.com/photographer/31140

A lens hood decreases flare, increases contrast and provides terrific impact protection. Depending on circumstances, especially when shooting near a bright light source (the sun, spotlights, even fluorescent lights sneaking into the edge of the frame) the lens hood can help block light from scattering inside the lens barrel and creating flare.
