In brief: Depends
Several possibilities: 1- you could be sleeping with one eye slightly open, 2- you have allergies affecting one side more than the other (it would itch too), 3- you may have an infection in one eye.

In brief: Eye/ lid irritation
The discharge is likely due to eye or eyelid irritation.
Try warm compresses, frequent artificial tears, and ointment at night. If persistent symptoms, go see an eye doctor.

You may also have a blocked or constricted tear duct. Best to see your eye doctor if not resolving.
