I just woke up to find blood spot on my right eye ?

Blood spot

Blood
A conjunctival hemorrhage is a blood spot on the clear covering of the white part of the eye (conjunctiva) due to a broken capillary. This spot can be due to straining, lifting heavy object, etc. If you are on aspirin or have been taking ibuprofen/advil, your eye is more likely to have bleeding from these thin capillaries if you rub your eye hard, or strain, etc. It should go away in a few days.

Should I worry about a small broken blood vessel only eye? Pinhead size spot on my eyeball

No

If small bruise (subconjunctival hemorrhage) is not causing any symptoms other than its presence,I would not worry about it. It should completely resolve after 7 to 14 days. Again it should not cause any untoward symptoms.

Yes

If the debris hit the eye with such force that there are now blood spots, it is best to get it examined.

is it normal to see blood after being punched in the eye? it's slowly fading away but there's a small spot that prevents me from seeing

If you have had eye trauma, and you actually have vision changes such as not being able to see in part of your visual field, you need to see an ophthalmologist immediately, as in today. You may have to go through an ER to see one. Hopefully nothing needs to be done, but sometimes an immediate procedure is required.

I woke up in the morning and found out that a blood spot in my right side of my eye. I can see everything clearly . Should I see a doctor?

Maybe

Blood_type
First, check your blood pressure. Usually a hemorrhage is caused by dry eyes or trauma. As long as your vision is good, you will probably be fine. If your blood pressure is up, see your doctor

Dr. Harold Peltan answered:

I noticed a big red spot on my eyeball today and thought it was pink eye, but now think it is a broken blood vessel. Does it require treatment?

Subconj heme

Stringio
No treatment required. Blood over the white part of the eye is usually from a broken blood vessel causing a subconjunctival hemorrhage. It is rarely serious. Blood thinning agents like Coumadin and aspirin can make you more prone to have the problem. High blood pressure and straining can cause it. Rubbing the eye can cause it. Sometimes, no cause is found. See your eye MD if concerned.
