Thanks for writing in.

Looks like you have a post traumatic hematoma below the skin over your cheek.
The blood in your eye can be due to subconjunctival hemorrhage. Please make sure there is no fracture in orbit (eye socket) and you have no visual problems.
A X ray or CT scan will confirm orbital fracture.
Hope this helps.
