In brief: Liver disease
Yellow sclera (the whites of your eyes) is called icterus which is an eye-specific form of jaundice.
Jaundice is a result of elevated bilirubin which is caused by either liver disease or blockage of the hepato-biliary system (gallbladder, common bile duct, liver, and hepatic ducts). There are many causes of this. You should get it checked out by your doctor.

In brief: Icterus
Yellowing of the whites of the eyes could be a sign of significant liver disease.
I would recommend going to see your regular doctor for evaluation.
