What was your possible exposure and when was the date of your exposure?

You never had an exposure. HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

Doesn't matter what test it is. You never had an exposure.
