Advice on what I should do

So a few weeks ago, mid march, i broke up with this guy I had been seeing since Jan. We slept together more than once, unprotected of course, only to find out his condition of HSV-2 after we seperated. I just received my test results back on 3-25-16 from planned parenthood with a positive 2.94. I know its my fault for not being more responsible and protected. I know i have HSV-1 which I have always had since infancy and was curious if I should try the WB. Can HSV-1 cause false positives. Perhaps Im still in denial. Adive please.

Yes that is in the false positive range so confirming the result with Westernblot is a good idea. Note that it is ambiguous if positive as to whether you were infected some time ago or during the relationship.
