Does be asked to come to the clinic for STD test results mean doom?

My automated online and phone results to my STD tests both said negative, but I just got a call asking me to come in to the clinic for my results. Should I be freaking out?

So I got tested on the 15th. HIV rapid response and then the full battery of STD tests. I got card with information on how I could get my test results on the phone or online using a code they gave me.
The HIV rapid response came back negative. Ok good.
I just got a call from the clinic telling me to come in to get my results. I've gotten tested by them in the past, and they told me my results (gonnoreah) over the phone with no problem. This time the woman would not tell me my results. I asked many times in many ways. She said I had to come in and get the results in person.
I went and called the number they had given me for my results and the automated program said all of my results came back negative. I also went to the website for results and those also said everything came back negative.
The clinic is already closed (they waited until 20 minutes before closing time to call me for some reason) so I won't be able to make it in until tomorrow morning.
I need to know: should I be freaking out? I'm sort of freaking out. They wouldn't ask me to come in for nothing, would they? But they also wouldn't send me online and phone results that said I was clean if I wasn't, since that would be even more irresponsible.
