More probably than possibly, IMHO. Get that roll into some fresh fixer as soon as you can for a couple of minutes then re-wash it. Or it could be slightly fogged but I think that a little less likely.

Try developing the film for about 10% less time next time and be very careful with your temperature control.
The HP5 shots in the first row are all quite overexposed except for the first one but they'll print OK. It explains why you were initially able to get a print from these but not from the K100 negs; the HP5 ones are so much denser and let less light through in the enlarger.
2s at f/11 is very fast; I would definitely suggest putting an ND filter of at least 3 stops in your filter drawer and considering using f/16 on the enlarger lens. Otherwise, you will have almost no control over the image density and certainly no ability to do dodging and burning. You want exposures around the 10-30s mark in order to get enough exposure control and have time to dodge/burn. f/16 will soften the appearance of the grain slightly but you won't suffer a problematic loss of resolution.
