Small child, mild cough, runny nose, eye redness. Symptoms due to cold or pink eye?

Hi I have a 10 month old who has had a slight cough and runny rose the past 4 days. Her daycare just called me and said her eyes look a little pink. It started this morning with the left and that seems to have gotten better, but now is the right eye. Could this have to do with her having a cold or is this possibly some sortof pink eye? There is no discharge
