I slept last night and wake up with this, and its paining with every blink, and its paining too when I'm touching there with finger. Should I visit any doc?

Looks like you have developed Stye.
Until your sty goes away on its own, try to:

Leave the sty alone. Don't try to pop the sty or squeeze the pus from a sty. Doing so can cause the infection to spread.
Clean your eyelid. Gently wash the affected eyelid with mild soap and water.
Place a warm washcloth over your closed eye. To relieve pain, run warm water over a clean washcloth. Wring out the washcloth and place it over your closed eye. Re-wet the washcloth when it loses heat. Continue this for 5 to 10 minutes. Then gently massage the eyelid. Repeating this two to three times a day may encourage the sty to drain on its own.
Keep your eye clean. Don't wear eye makeup until the sty has healed.
Consult Ophthalmologist if symptoms persists...
