My baby red ear turtle has only one eye open?

A pair of them arrived only today. I put them in the pool where my kois live without examining their condition closely, but they both look good and disappeared in the water quickly. Later in the afternoon, I noticed one of them sitting in the shade, at the bank, and I easily got hold of it. Taking it in my hand, I noticed that one of its eyes is closed, but obviously the eye ball moves inside. My finger motion has different effects at one side than the other. Is this a problem?
