Well, if you had a acute infection, you would have felt sick due to symptoms.  And if chronic, it would be unlikely to clear.  So i think your first test was probably a false positive.  If your HBsAg is now negative, check your HepB core antibodies, if that is positive, you had a cleared infection.  If negative, you never had HepB to begin with.  And if you are not immuned by presense of surface antibodies, get vaccinated so no worries.
