Stuff on my Gerbils eye.. Help?

One of my gerbils [Caramel] keeps getting this little bit of red eye gunk in his left eye. It's happened twice so far. I look at him and his eye is like shut... So i get a wet Q-tip and clean it off and then dry it with a papertowel. It never seems to bother him, but its bothering me... Does anyone know why or what it is.. Why does it keep happening? Is it like sleepies like humans get?

It's only happening to one and not the other.
Im worried about my little buddy...
