No: We don't see blood vessels in the iris break in these scenarios, however it is very common to get subconjunctival hemorrhages where a blood vessel on the white of your eye breaks, causing an appearance of a red eye.

Subconjuctival bleed: If your vision is fine not likely. If you are worried see the eye doctor to check the eye. It will give you piece of mind.
