No: Your dna cannot be mutated by another person's saliva or bodily fluid. You can be contaminated from these fluids depending on the germs and diseases carried by the other person. You may become susceptible to these viruses, and bacteria which can jeopardize your health.

No: Dna is something your are born with, and is specific to you. It is a gift from your parents, good or bad. It will not change throughout your lifetime for any reason!
