Clicking or creaking sounds from the knees are not particularly diagnostic if there are no other significant symptoms, but your symptoms of morning stiffness,redness &hot feelings raise suspicion of rheumatoid or juvenile arthritis. I recommend consulting a rheumatologist for evaluation, appropriate testing and advice.
