In brief: Unlikely

Sepsis is a specific medical term meaning you have high heart rate (>90/min), respirations (>20/min), fever and high WBC count.
Any 2 of these may be sepsis. If you think you are infected you need to see a doctor ASAP. Do not wait, go now and to an ER if you cannot get anyone else to see you. Best wishes and hope this clears up soon.
