Definitely not: Herpes is sexually transmitted - so you can't get it from a toilet seat. The virus will die after leaving the other person's body, so you are at zero risk from this incident. Good though to talk to partner(s) about safe sex - that's the best way to avoid herpes and the other STDs that are out there.
