In brief: HIV risks
Fortunately HIV can not be contracted from urine.
HIV/AIDs is usually acquired from blood, genital tract secretions, or injection drug use. Urine ordinarily is 'sterile' and not considered a risk per se for HIV transmission. When engaging in sexual activity with another person, it's always best to talk things through before any of the action starts. HIV is only the tip of the iceberg.

In brief: No
No, urine is generally sterile.
The only way this could happen is if there is blood or semen in the urine and it comes into contact with broken skin. This would be extremely unlikely, so it can generally be assumed to be nearly impossible.
