"No, I wasn't looking for you."

Translation:Ne, tebe jsem nehledal.

I answered 'Ne, jsem nehledal tebe' which was judged incorrect because I omitted 'ja' (sorry I do not have a Czech keyboard) before 'jsem'. Is 'ja' necessary when the sentence is worded that way?

Yes, it is. "jsem" is a clitic and it should be in the second position. At least in the standard language.

the word "Ne" does not count as the first word, after the comma another sentence starts and so "jsem" must be in the second position. it could be: Ne, nehledal jsem tebe.
