Post is a bit confusing. Why is there semen or blood in the water? HIV is not spread via saliva or via acne spots.

There is no risk here. Your own saliva will destroy any active HIV virus. I'm not sure why you would want to share food with a person with a bleeding gum, and for the purposes of generic hygiene I would recommend using your own utensils. However from a HIV perspective you are not at risk, and neither can HIV be caught via acne spots.
