Is Dry cough and red eyes are HIV symptoms

Hi there,

twice i had sex with a sex worker on 04 Jan 2011. from last 10 days i have dry cough and from past 7 days my eyes are red. Are they early symptoms of HIV infection? I dont have any other symptom like fever (i am checking my temprature on regular basis), rash, sore throat etc. Also i would like to mention here straight after sex, me and sex worker took an rapid HIV test and both of us resulted negative. My anxiety is killing me right now.

I would like to ask three questions here:
What are th chaces that i might catch HIV from this encounter?
Is dry cough (without fever) and red eyes are symptoms of HIV and how long does it take HIV symptoms to appear?
If i will result HIV negative after six weeks test, does that mean that i am 99% out of danger zone?

Please answer my questions
