In brief: Could be infection.

Some of the hallmarks of infection are redness, swelling and discharge.
Most infections should be treated early before they become severe. Another common cause with similar symptoms is allergy. See a doctor right away.

In brief: Conjunctivitis

Acute (sudden) eye discharge (mucous) is a sign of infection (conjuctivitis) it is best to get seen by a physician and get an antibiotic eye drop to prevent complication and possible spread to other eye.
The lower lid may also have a 'bump' (stye/hordoleum) and have an infection (cellulitis) as well and may require and oral antibiotic, too. Hope you are better soon!
