This has nothing to do with sexuality but I need some fast emergency advice because im scared

So I've had this thermos sitting on my desk for about a month, and my roommate asked if I wanted some coffee, and I said sure, and told her to put it in the thermos. Then I remember I'd used that thermos about a month ago for tea and forgot to rinse it out. Before I did that I'd taken like, 2 tiny sips of the coffee.

But yeah so I poured the coffee into another cup, and noticed at the bottom there was this thick black liquid. I'm really worried it could be a deadly mold that I drank ;.;

I'm sick to my stomach thinking about it, but I'm sure its nothing, I just want confirmation. I'm too chicken to call the hospital about it, I'm sure they'd laugh at me. I just need some confirmation that such a small amount of whatever it was won't kill me.

pixeldot- while I'm not an expert in the toxicity of mold, I'm pretty sure that two tiny sips of coffee from the top of the thermos won't kill you.

I'd just watch for an upset stomach, vomiting, etc.- if those symptoms occur, you should probably call a doctor and ask for advice.
