In brief: Sub conj nemorrhage

A broken blood vessel on the surface of your eye is totally harmless.
It can be caused by a hard cough or sneeze, a hard bowel movement, or even just rubbing your eyes. It may occur more often in people who take blood thinners or Aspirin on a regular basis. There is no treatment necessary for this, but it may take up to two weeks to resolve.

In brief: Need more info

Could happen spontaneously, and for no reason at all.
Rule out rubbing, taking blood thinners such as aspirin, and check blood pressure but if happening very frequently would need to do a workup of the clotting factors.
