If it was only kissing then HIV infection is very unlikely from this incident.

If you had risk behaviors in the past like multiple sexual partners, blood transfusion them it is likely.

If you're concerned about the window period you may repeat the test again or you can do DNA PCR for HIV and your doubts will be cleared.
