Default Help eye problem

This morning when I was handling my hedgehog I noticed some yellowish discharge in her left eye. Her eyelid looks funny too. It's like not properly on the eye and I can see the pinkish underside of the eyelid.. She seems irritated by it. She's 7 months old.. Is this an infection? Should I go to the vet tomorrow? Is there anything I can do for now? I wiped the discharge out.. Should I rinse the eye too? Is there anything that can preent it from happening again? I'm so worried!

If you have any sterile saline solution, I would rince it out with that.
Try to get in the vet today, if you can. She could have poked her eye on something (quill, side of cage, etc).
