Many possibiliities : It could be related to various structures- meniscus, medial collateral ligament, tendon problem (semimembranosus hamstring tendon, pes anserine tendons ) or bursitis or referred pain from somewhere else. Should be examined by a knowledgable medical provider and possibly an MRI or musculoskel ultrasound if it persists for awhile.

Need more evaluation: That would be an unusual injury . The pain would be near your armpit and would probably hurt there to reach overhead or to pull something down from overhead. A clinician should be able to determine if you need an MRI or a musculoskeletal ultrasound.

Not usually: Depends on what you mean by locking. In can be from an internal hip problem (like a labral tear or osteoarthritis) or from an external hip problem like "snapping hip syndrome" or something completely different depending on what you mean by "hip locking" . Sacroilitis usually causes very focal pain over the sacroiliac joint and can sometimes cause radiation into the buttocks, groin, hip, or leg.
