What you are suffering is upper respiratory tract infection which is most likely bacterial and these are not essentially symptoms of HIV. Plus you did say that you had protected intercourse which makes it further more unlikely. Although best step would be to undergo an hiv test in any nearby ICTC center if you have ever have had unprotected intercourse in the past. This test is free of charge.

These could be interdependent of the sex, may be mouth to mouth kissing may have given you viral infection. If you have fears ideally solution is get HIV test done at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months of the contact time. This does not mean either you are safe or not safe. If all results are negative then you are safe.
