See an HIV expert: This is a complex situation, can't sort it out on this forum with the info you provide. Most people with indeterminate HIV WB results do not have HIV. But indeterminate due to p24 can be found during serconversion, as you seem to know. WB is not usually done any more -- other confirmatory methods are used. If not in the care of an infectious diseases or HIV/AIDS expert, ask for referral ASAP.
