Wecome to HCM.

Eraliest symptoms of HIV can occur after 3-4 weeks after the risky contact as fever, body pain, sore throat, Lymph node enlrgement and Head ache. All the people infected are not necessary to have these symptoms.
The common and regular symptoms will occur only after 5-7 years or later as fever, diahrrhea, weight loss, Sore mouth, Lung infections, skin problems etc. after the immune systen got weakened.

Blood test will reveal HIV after 8- 12 weeks of exposure. There are special tests are available to detect HIV earlier around 3 weeks onwards.
Your symptoms of head ache and feeling sleepy after a week after the encounter are because of fear and not due to HIV.
