In brief: Knee Pain
It would depend on where your pain is located.
On the side of the knee, possibly the meniscus. In the front, could be a knee cap problem or tendinitis.

In brief: Internal knee
It could be many things but consider internal knee derangement issues like cartilage, joint mice, ligaments, tendons.
Does the knee lock? This can be a clue. Even though you are getting knee pain also consider structures around the knee like bursas. Your evaluation will include an examination, imaging like x-rays, ultrasound or mri. Therapy includes exercise, surgery depending on findings.
