possible eye infection?

My oldest female (a little over a year) has just recently started to get something in her left eye. It doesn't seem to bother her at all but it kinda bothers me. It comes back every day not very much but enough for me to notice a little crust in the corner of her eye. When I gently open her eye a little more some discharge, kinda reminds me of "sleep" but its white with a little bit of red in it. If I leave it it will build up though it still wont bother her at all, She doesn't scratch at it or anything. If wanted I can post some pics but it's a little gross

When I first got my gerbil I thought he had an eye infection but the bedding had just got in his eye.
(I'D LIKE TO SEE THOSE PICTURES.)

it happens every day though. Like I'll clear it out of her eye and the next day more will be there. I'll try and get pictures of it today
