Got a cut while working on car?


I was working in my class on a engine and while trying to take this hard screw off i hit another part of the engine and just cut my thumb. Nothing extremely bad cut just a minor cut, after about 5-10 min later i recognized that i cut myself. There was very little blood coming out and i had car oil and grease like on a car engine. Seconds later when i seen that cut myself i washed my hands and had to go the nurse (lol) and used anti-bacterial soap. I know that having all that crap from a car on a cut is not good for and could kill you. But would their be any signs of anything that i would see if it got life threatening? I do get very scared about the littlest things, so please try not to freak me out if you don't know. Thanks ;)
