Im really worried.

Patient : So last night i was playing with me cat (he's an outside cat) and he attacked me and he dug his claws into my skin and left a deep cut(small though) and around it its all red ( Right after it happened i put Hydrogen Peroxide on it). when i touch it, it feels like a bruise( But slightly worse) and i was in class today and i felt light headed and i thought it was because i all i had for breakfast was 2 pop-tarts. Then i ate lunch and i still felt light headed. I got home from school bout 1 hour ago and i still feel very faint. It comes in waves. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the gash? Help? I'm worried.and I've been shaking alot
