Your baby most probably had the test for HIV done at birth which is called the PCR test. This is usually very accurate at detecting evidence of HIV in a baby and this test was Negative. Now at 6 months they have probably done another test called the Elisa test for HIV.There is just a possibility that this test is positive but you have not been informed that it is definitely positive.There may have been a problem with the test.Have this test repeated as soon as possible and hopefully the second Elisa test will come back negative.
