I am sorry your cat is unwell. If Grey is alert bright and happy and drinking then I am sure it will be OK not to get her seen tonight. The sneezing and watery eyes makes me think she may have an upper respiratory tract infection. It is not that uncommon to also have an inflamed nose which may bleed at times when sneezing. We can see sneezing occur with other issues such as lumps up the nose, fungal infection or foreign bodies up the nose. In the short term I would consider an infection more likely and this will be viral or bacterial. A lot of the time the cat gets over this infection themselves but sometimes needs supportive treatment to get through it. Using humid air can help loosen the mucous in the nose so spending time in the bathroom with Grey with the shower on to make it steamy for a while can help. Similarly encouraging eating through warming of food also as sometimes the sense of smell reduces which can reduce appetite. If Grey becomes quiet, anorexic or off her water or collapsed or is struggling to breath then she should be seen by your vet urgently.
