Am I at risk?

Today I was over my friend house. She was eating candy and I got some from the bag she was eating from. My concern is that what if she went to the bathroom and didn't wash her hands and touched the candy that I ate. Also she has a son and changes his diaper and now I'm worried if he has the virus and they don't know. I asked if she washed her hands and she said yes but I'm not so sure if she is telling the truth. Now I'm afraid that I have the virus. My nurse practitioner already thinks I have anxiety and won't understand why I'm asking for a hepatitis test. What should I do?

Also, I'm now thinking what if she had blood on her hands and just wiped it off instead of washing them.
