If you click on the request, you should on the right side see an "x" and a tick, if you click on the "x" the contact will not be added, and the request should not be visible after that anymore.

I just figured this out on my iPad mini - - touch and hold on the contact - all your contacts will jiggle (as they do when moving an app on the iPad) and an "X" will show - just touch the X and that contact will be removed.    Worked for me - hope it will for you!

Hold down unwanted contact and slowly slide to the left and a red square will appear on the right, use other hand to press the red square and unwanted should be deleted.
