Anxiety about HIV

So I took a test around a year after a one night stand, 6 weeks after the night I went for a 4th gen test which was negative and shortly after there was a night where I dont remember what happened with someone but we were both clothed when we woke up in the morning. I took the test about a year later and I believe it showed up negative, I had one line appear which was definitely visible and slightly smudged. As this is a negative test result am I able to stop worrying now? I keep believing that I must have done something wrong but the line showed up to indicate it worked.
