See a physician: Several diagnoses can cause hip popping and grinding, such as impingement, cartilage damage, and early arthritis. You will need to see a physician to nail down the diagnosis more precisely, and also for evaluation of the red spot, which cannot be diagnosed through this type of forum. Good luck!
