No problem. If you do decide to get the circular hood just come back to this thread and click that link.

Canon, who designed your lens, judged otherwise for the 18-55(IS), note that each Canon lens has a lenshood specifically designed for that lens to offer optimal protection against flare but without vignet or flash-shade problems

Depends entirely on your location. Whether there is an excess of UV light there. And there is an excess of UV light only at the beach/seaside, at sea, on large lakes, in the desert, in snowscapes, or above 3,000 feet altitude.

If you're not in any of those situations there is no excess of UV light to filter, so then the UV filter' only effective function is that it degrades image quality.
