Had taken x-ray back then on my knees but seems like there's no tear. When I move my knees there is cracking sound. What should I do?

Cracking knees: I suggest you see and Orthopedic surgeon. No, you won't immediately have surgery - in fact surgery sounds unlikely given your information. Please let me know what develops.
