Infection: It most likely is a clogged nasal lacrimal duct (the overflow valve / drain). It could be a viral eye infection as well or reflex tearing from dry eyes. See an ophthalmologist.

Conjunctivitis: Sounds like it could be conjunctivitis, possibly bacterial given that discharge. You may need an antibiotic drop. If your eye gets stuck shut, again it could be bacterial in origin. If not, maybe viral or allergic.
