If indeed you have absolutely no HIV risk factors blood transfusions, unprotected sex, sharing IV drug needles then your recent HIV screening test may well be a false-positive. What should you do? Have your test repeated. If positive, you'll need a secondary test (Western Blot or immunofluorescence assay) in order to confirm the preliminary finding.
I'll send you my very best good-luck karma that your follow-up tests confirm what I suspect: that your recent test was a false-positive!
