I would definitely go to the vet to make sure it's not a corneal ulcer.  Tink had a weepy, inflamed eye a few months ago, so I took her in and the Vet diagnosed a corneal ulcer.  These need to be treated ASAP as the longer they are there, the less effective topical treatment is, and they often require surgery.

Tink was prescribed antibiotic eye-drops to be administered twice a day (and she fought like a tiger every time she saw them coming) as well as an oral antibiotic that had to be "syringed" into her mouth (which she loved, for some reason).  Treatment was initially for 10 days, and thankfully she responded really well to it.  After that, I just finished the eye drops (about another week) and she got the all-clear.  I took her into the vet the day after I first noticed her eye, and he said that was probably why the treatment worked so well.

Hopefully Xena has nothing as serious as an ulcer, but if the discharge has been there for a week, I'd definitely bring her into the vet immediately, just to be on the safe side.
