Bonjour Jasmina,

Chris is absolutely correct! These two liaisons are optional. As a native speaker, I would definitely not use a liaison with "je veux un / une..." nor with "je voudrais un / une..." and I have very rarely heard other French speakers do it. 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Je voudrais une...
Je veux une...

Personally, I don't use liaisons in those two cases. Particularly the second liaison sounds way off to my ears. I checked on Laura's site (https://www.lawlessfrench.com/pronunciation/optional-liaisons/) and found that, apparently, those two liaisons are deemed optional. Maybe one of the natives could chime in?
