You can have a DUO test at 4 weeks and then follow up at 3 months.

HIV has no specific symptoms and the only way to diagnose HIV is by testing, you can test 3 months post exposure to obtain a conclusive test result.

what the heck are "heating eyes"?

you had a NORMAL temperature...no fever

symptoms dont diagnose hiv...only a test can do that.

since it has been 7 weeks since your exposure...you can have a simple antibody test done.  this will give you a very good indication of your status.  follow up at 3 months for a conclusive result.

4 days to 2 weeks--just take an HIV test at the correct time.

ARS if one has it at all  comes on 2-4 weeks and lasts about 1-2 weeks.

No it can't but symptoms or lack of symptoms will not tell you anything about your status.
