You might be squishing a tomato fruitworm egg (bad bug). Or a green lacewing egg (good bug). Can you provide more description?

green lacewing eggs are white and stand away from the leaf on a very fine thread.

I've got some eggs on the underside of a tomato leaf. They look salmon colored to me, but that may be because they're against a green leaf. They have a little dot in the center that is darker in color than the rest. I found a picture that looks similar except the color is blue-green.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pic of blue-green eggs
