Hemorrhage: These are typical symptoms of bleeding under the conjunctiva and over the white of the eye (subconjunctival hemorrhage). As long as there is no pain, no vision change and no discharge, then that is the probable diagnosis. These are benign, will take 3-10 days to absorb and could get bigger over several days as the blood spreads. See an ophthalmologist if this does not fit the pattern.
