No. Even assuming any of this blood came from someone who was HIV positive, it is important (and should be very comforting) to understand the this virus is an extremely delicate critter outside the body and dies very quickly outside the confines of the body.

The fact you were placed on antibiotics for two weeks would imply that your sore throat was due to a bacterial, not viral infection (HIV is a virus).
