You can get tested if you want, but those aren't ARS symptoms.  Personally, I have had the same issues for the past week or so, including a persistent cough, and I definitely don't have HIV.  It's cold and flu season - that's what happens to a lot of people.  Your choice to test or not, if you suspect your partner may have HIV for whatever reason.
