The occurrence of atrial fibrillation is common in the setting of mitral stenosis. The left atrium is usually enlarged and scarred in this situation leading to the difficulty in treating AF. It is unlikely that a sinus infection could have caused AF. However if you have any doubts, then you can wait until the infection resolves and see if AF still reccurs.
