Redness in eye, discharge. Earlier had cold. Is it pink eye?

Hi - I am an adult female - 43 years old with small children (I mention that bc being 4& 7, they get every illness around!). For 2 days one of my eyes is pretty red and goopy. Enough so that it s a little blurry feeling at night. And I wake up with a lot of dried gook on my eyelashes. I had a cold last week, could this just be part of the cold, or is it pink eye and I need antibiotics? Is there any way to know?

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you are having acute muco purulant conjunctivitis.
Clean eye with warm water and put antibiotic eye drops 2-3 hourly.
If require you may go for oral antibiotic medicine if your doctor feels proper.
Ok and bye.
