In brief: Not a test for lupus

The HIV test is not a test for lupus.
What's clear is that you don't have hiv. You'll never know why your elisa was positive and then indeterminate, and it's not worth investigating. False positive elisas are not uncommon; that's why they have to be confirmed with western blot.
