HIV test confused

I did a hiv test in a clinic.since my test are non-reactive , why it says: A non-reactive result diicates HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies have not been found in this patient specimen. A non-reactive result, however, does not preclude previous exposure or infection with HIV-1 and/ or HIV-2.? Do every HIV result have this statement?
2nd question, Are all the Clinic in The US have licsense to do HIV test? I mean are the results accurate after the window period?

If you had an exposure and you tested 3 months post exposure and the result came back negative it means you don't have HIV.
