    Yes. Abilities only function on the battlefield unless the card says otherwise.

    Oh wow, you totally misunderstand this game. Creature spells are cast before they enter the battlefield. In fact every non-land card is a spell.

    When you cast a spell, it goes to a zone called the stack. It's on there where the card counts as a spell which you can counter. At this point, it isn't on the battlefield yet, so its ability isn't yet "active".

    For a spell to be uncounterable, it would need to literally say either "can't be countered" or "can't be the target of spells or abilities while on the stack." Since Gladecover Scout says neither of these things, it can be countered just fine. Precisely as Arix said, abilities of a permanent only function while that permanent is on the battlefield, unless stated otherwise on the card.
