In brief: Infection clears

Best to have it checked out, diagnosis confirmed, treatment regimen, and then examined when ready to return to make sure no longer contagious.

In brief: 10-14 days

That is if indeed it is pink eye.
Do you have a lot of colored discharge coming from eye? Is the eye red? Any light sensitivity? If the eye is just red it is not pink eye!
