Puppy "red eye"... is this normal?

Hi all,
I have a 4-month (almost 5 month) old pup... I've noticed, off and on, that the whites of her eyes are sometimes red - REALLY red. She also has constant "eye boogers" (don't know what else to call them!). She's been to the vet many times, for vaccines and such, and each time the vet checks her out (eyes, ears, etc.), and has never mentioned anything about her eyes, so I wasn't too worried about it.
But just today I came home from work and noticed, they seem to be more red than usual. However, she was just at the vet two days ago, and again, this didn't come up. Of course, now I'm kicking myself, that I forgot to mention the red eye, and boogers, when I was there!
Anyway, she's my first puppy, so sometimes I overreact and panic over nothing, not knowing what's serious and what isn't (the vet probably already thinks I'm far too paranoid, lol). Is this normal? Should I be worried? Should I take her in again?
