In brief: Unlikely

A cut on your hand is still protected by the fibrin that has stopped the bleeding.
Entry of virus into your bloodstream where it can do harm in this setting is extremely unlikely. You're an adult now and this brings new joys and new dangers. Be careful in all "adult" situations -- you owe this to yourself and those who love you. Best wishes.

In brief: HIV

It is very unlikely in this scenario.
Hiv is not transmitted this way. In thirty plus years of this epidemic there has been no transmission like this. But if you doubt, you can go on HIV prevention regimen within 72 hours to prevent infection.
