Blood from eye with nose bleed
My 13 year old daughter had a nose bleed this morning and blood in her tears (only the right eye).

What could be the cause of it and is it something to worry about?

It is not something to worry about. The inner part of the eye is connected to the nasal cavity via a small tube. It is possible that blood moved along this tube, presenting as blood in her tears.
