Congrats, Luis!! Actually only complete albinos have red eyes. Yours seems not to be a complete albino, but in animals I think it is OK to call ones with albinisms albinos independent if it is a partly or complete one. Complete ones are much rarer than partly ones and some don't think they have a high chance to survive.
