Bottom half of one eye red

I woke up about two weeks ago and noticed that the bottom half of my right eyes was very red.  There was no physical discomfort or change in vision, just the red.  This has continued on since then, but I hove noticed a little discomfort at times, as though something were in my eye, and I tear up a bit easier now - especially if I close my eye pretty hard.

The only thing I can think of as a cause is that I was cleaning my dad's garage and a bit of dust got in my eye at one point, but I flushed my eye immediately.  I have flushed it quite a few times since then and used visine once or twice as well, but neither seem to be doing anything.  I have had both good and bad days with this, some being more red than others.

What could this be and how can I get it taken care of?
