Unlikely: At your age w/ no other joints apparently affected arthritis is not likely. More likely diagnoses( w/o the benefit of examination) would include patellofemoral pain and tendinitis( among others).If your pain continues see your pcp for evaluation. Good luck!

It could be: You are quite young to have arthritis unless it is part of a larger inflammatory process there are many possibilities without a history of trauma to the knee you should see a rheumatologist to figure out the cause of the pain and if it is part of a larger process.
