In brief: Probably allergy

If the primary symptom is itchiness, the problem is probably an environmental allergy like pollen, dust mites or animal dander. A white, stretchy-stringy discharge is common with allergies.
If the primary symptom is a yellow or green discharge, it is probably an infection (conjunctivitis). In adults, these infections are usually caused by cold viruses and usually resolve on their own.
