DVT as a rule do not occur on the front of the leg. This pea sized area could be a small node if located on the front of the leg. If there is pain and redness it needs treatment ans see your doctor. If over the knee cap itself it could be a case of bursitis. Please see your doctor soon and do not open this up or manipulate this.

The description is not consistent with DVT, and a negative D-dimer makes it very unlikely that you have a deep vein thrombus.
