Hi and welcome.

This is most likely sign and symptom of the eye disease called conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin, filmy membrane that covers the white of your eye. The conjunctiva, which produces mucus to coat and lubricate the surface of the eye, contains fine blood vessels that can be seen on close inspection. When the conjunctiva becomes irritated or inflamed, the blood vessels, which supply it, enlarge and become more prominent, causing the eye to turn pink and cloudy. There can be number of causes which can lead to this including infections bacterial or viral or allergic reaction. Treatment depends upon the cause.
