What causes sticky eye discharge after a concussion?

I was in a rear end accident just over 2 weeks ago. I was stopped and driver of truck rear ended me at 35 mph. Since then my headaches have increased (seem to be stress related) was told I had a moderate concussion. In the last week I wake up with a crust around left eye plus sometimes during day water leaks out.
