In brief: Anterior knee pain

This is often caused by patello-femoral syndrome in younger women.
It results from an imbalance in the muscles pulling on the kneecap which can cause inflammation (pain, clicking). Physical therapy often helps - the most important part of treatment is strengthening the quadriceps.
