In brief: Bacterial infection?
The original 'pink eye' episode, was caused by a virus, and 1s usually self limited and gets betterwith time.
However if a bacterial infection sets in because your eyes are more susceptible then you can get yellow stringy mucus and discharge. See your eyemd right away to receive the appropriate antibiotic.
