No worries. You would need a enclosed space with exhaust fumes for a good amount of time to result in CO poisoning.

From what you described you are not at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health! Safe sex: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/safer-sex-guidelines
