Your test done in February has shown presence of HPV, for which you need not to bother as most of the HPV infection in young females are temporary & have low long term significance. But window period for HIV is up to 6 months, and tests for HIV can be false negative during window period. Therefore you should get your self tested again after 6 months have passed to become sure. Avoid unprotected sex in future.

Wish you good health,
