I just accidentally ate a mosquito. I am afraid, what if the mosquito just drank blood of a HIV infected person, will I get the infection too, or some other disease?

Positively, no.

HIV is not spread by mosquitoes.

You cannot contract any disease from swallowing a mosquito.

Here, is a very large list of all the things that you could have caught :) If you were bitten.

    While this is correct for HIV, the OP also mentioned "other diseases". Can you add something on that?

    That was in the question even before I edited. You can always look up the edit history. I have no idea who you mean by Chris.
