Hi,
Welcome to HCM.

Pain and burning sensation of penis is not an early symptom of HIV. STDs can produce similar symptoms in Gonorrhea and Chlamydia infections.
Blood test may be negative. Urine deposits examination and culture of urine for gonorrhea and other nonspecific organism may be helpful to fix the problem. As your burning sensation had been reduced further treatment will relieve your pain also.
Only some specific tests like P24 antigen and HIV DNA PCR would be reliable at 5 weeks and not the ELISA and Rapid tests.
Safe sex with condoms will be always good and will avoid unnecessary tension.
Good luck to you and wish a speedy recovery.
