How do I know if I got infected

I’m a noob in everything related to malware so I stay out of sketchy sites and everything, but yesterday I plugged an old usb memory on my laptop looking for some old files I have in there and saw some files that weren’t supposed to be there, making me think it was a malware. I unplugged the usb and went directly to windows defender and did a full scan but it found nothing. Not trusting Windows Defender alone I downloaded Kaspersky free trial and also run a full scan, which also found nothing. It was a relief, but because I’m a noob at this I’m wondering if I did something wrong or if I need to do something else to be sure?
