i had anal sex with a girl that has hep c do i have now

Response from Dr. McGovern

Hepatitis C is uncommonly transmitted through sex, but I have higher concerns regarding sex with trauma. You will want to have protected sex to decrease your risk and avoid anal sex when possible or use protection.

I would get baseline laboratory testing and follow-up but your risk after one exposure is very low - but not zero.

Also safe sex is a good general approach to avoid other STDs.
