In brief: Not necessarily.

If it looks something like this, it's probably a subconjunctival hemorrhage - aka, an eye bruise.
Usually from sneezing or rubbing too hard, the collection of blood is painless and goes away after two weeks. If you're having blurry vision, eye discharge or eye pain... Different matter and see your doc. You only have two eyes, take care of them, and good luck!
