HIV from being fingered in a steam room
I have read several contradicting views for my case, which is as follows:

On the 1st of Feb, 2013 (2 weeks ago) I am a 23 yo male. I got in the steam room with a guy (assuming he's HIV+) and we mutually masturbated for about 1 minute or less, and after that he slided his finger against my anus, but few seconds later he licked the tip of his finger (used saliva as a lube) and he pushed his finger into my anus for like 2 cm (1 inch) for 3 seconds and I asked him to pull it out.

Assuming he had saliva as I mention on his finger, or assuming he had precum on the finger before he inserted it, will that cause a risk? Should I get tested?

I am terrified since I read too many different views stating that it could be a risk and some saying no. For 3 days now I've been having an easy cold (flu) with sneezing a some sore throat and wet cough, but I havnt had any other signs.

Please if you can support your answer with credible sources or links it would be great!

You never had an exposure.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
