In brief: Not too much
Blood shot eyes are usually caused by fatigue, dry eyes or allergies.
Some would also classify subconjunctival hemorrhage as bloodshot. As long as the cause is known, there is usually no worry. If there is sudden onset without a cause, see an eye doctor.

In brief: Depends...
Is this a chronic condition or something new? Is vision affected? Are the eyes painful? Any discharge? These other factors help us to determine how urgent an issue is.
