if it is on the skin, it is likely a bruise. If it is on the whites of the eyes, it is called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, very similar to a bruise but brighter red because there is no overlying skin to cover it.

You may have accident rubbed your eyes while asleep. It should resolve on its own.

If you have pain or changes in vision, then you should see your eye doctor for an evaluation.
