Someone's fresh blood got on my cut?

Yesterday at work my coworker (20 year old guy with tattoos and hickeys-but don't know his status) cut his hand on something and was bleeding everywhere and then he handed me a broom and his fresh blood touched my thumb. My thumb had a hangnail on it which I had picked off so there was tons of missing skin there. Should I see a doctor? I am scared I contracted HIV.
