I don't think that's how sepsis works, fortunately for you. Sounds to me like a mere coincidence. Keep the cut clean, watch for signs of infection - redness, swelling, "hot to touch", a red line under the skin running away from the cut, etc.

Clean the cut, and look after yourself.
If the cut is not infected it's unlikely you will have sepsis from it. If the cut is feeling hot and swollen then it may need medical attention for some antibiotics or something.
