When I capture image from webcam using YouCam Software, my right hand in image is on right side but when I capture image from webcam using MATLAB, my right hand in image is on left side. Why it is so?

Some camera adapters have the ability to flip the image up/down and left/right. I don't know if yours does but you can look for that capability in imaqtool.

you should try to flip horizontaly:
vid = videoinput('winvideo', 1, 'your default resolution');
src = getselectedsource(vid);
src.HorizontalFlip = 'on';
for example I use default resolution: 'RGB24_640x480'
