The Rev. Jesse Jackson says he will conduct a fact-finding mission to Nicaragua next month and urge that nation's leftist Sandinista government to refrain from warlike actions that might provoke the United States.

Mr. Jackson said he was invited to organize the mission by Nicaraguan President-elect Daniel Ortega. Mr. Jackson, who has said he believes a US attack on Nicaragua is ''imminent,'' said Sunday he hoped his trip would persuade the Reagan administration ''to turn its attention to peace rather than to war.''
