In brief: No.

It is not necessary to have a pap smear done before getting counseling for birth control.
A good doctor would strongly recommend having one done, but it's not required.

In brief: Hormonal, yes

Hormonal forms of contraception requires a pap smear to rule out cervical cancer.
Non-hormonal forms such as condoms are usually found at planned parenthood without a pap smear gratis.
