Why do bloodshot eyes get yellow patches in them?

I’ve had a bloodshot eye for a while now and I’ve noticed around the bloodshot parts it’s yellow - like a pale dusty yellow. I was worried at first it was jaundice but it only seems to be around the bloodshot areas. There’s a small strip around my iris that is normal white but the rest of it is bloodshot with a bit of yellow. Is it to do with the blood or jaundice?
