If he's not squinting its probably run of the mill pinkeye... if he's squinting, he may have scratched his eye.

Your vet will stain the eye to make sure, and give your pup some eye drops or ointment to help him get better fast.

I would definitely see a vet tomorrow, waiting could cause a corneal ulcer to develop, a painful and difficult to treat condition you want to avoid at all costs.
