To my knowlege papsmear tests do not indicate HIV status - they simply take a scraping of cervical cells to check for any abnormal changes. Since you last had unprotected sex a year ago, you are well outside the window period where usual tests might not pick up the virus; so you will only get a clear result on Friday. Why don't you check out the following site for more info on HIV testing: http://www.csa.za.org/article/articleview/422/1/16/
