In brief: Yes
It is possible to have been exposed to hpv and still have a normal pap test.
There is a specific test for hpv that you can request, but the good thing is that with a normal pap test there is some reassurance that, even if you have been exposed, it is not currently causing complication. Keep getting paps as recommended to stay healthy!
