Hi,
   A red mark or a stain (like blood) indicates a subconjunctival hemorrhage. The blood vessels in the white portion of our eye (conjunctiva) are very fragile and can bleed easily. The cause of bleed can be a minor trauma, sudden increase in blood pressure, bleeding disorder etc. SO if there is no decrease in vision or blurring of vision in the affected eye the no need to worry. The bleed will clear by itself in the next 10-15 days. But if the bleed reoccurs, then you need to consult your doctor for a detailed evaluation to rule out the above possibilities.
