In brief: Meniscus or kneecap

Based on your description, the two leading candidates are either a meniscus problem, such as a tear, or a problem in you kneecap, such as patellofemoral syndrome.
If it is bothering you a lot, get it checked out. A skilled musculoskeletal provider can differentiate between the two and get your knee feeling better.
