Sounds viral: Over all it sounds like a viral infection with both sinus and eyes involved. Bacterial eye infection/conjunctivitis usually have continuous pus like discharge all day. Gunk on eye in the morning is not specific for bacterial infection. Viral infection and allergies can also cause gunk on eye in the morning. Over use of antibiotic to treat viral infection can lead to resistant bacteria later on.
