See knee doctor: you might need to see a knee doctor for evaluation and possible repeat MRI,to see what is causing these sounds. Meanwhile improved your thigh muscles by exercise that will take the pressure off the bone or the ligament
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

You should get a mrarthrogram plus standing knee xrays and be seen by an experienced orthopaedic knee surgeon

I agree, the 2 go hand in hand, & without surgical correction, the grinding is most likely developing cartilage wear an early arthritis.
