In brief: See details

There are many causes for acute knee pain including tendinitis and bursitis.
If there is no swelling or significant tenderness to touch, try ice, rest and aleve (naproxen) or advil. If the problem persists, have it evaluated.

In brief: ?injury

If you don't recall any injury, then this could be a tendonitis.
Try, cold or heat applications, rest, elevation, brace and if you can take nsaids like Ibuprofen their antiinflmammatory effects help alot. Your md can decide whether an x-ray is indicated to look for other causes.
