In brief: You need evaluation
A swollen knee can be present for many reasons and you need an immediate evaluation.
The big worry is infection and this needs to be evaluated and the fluid drained and cultured and evaluated. The joint fluid will also clarify other diagnoses. Your evaluation will include an examination, fluid removal, x-rays, other imaging like ultrasound or MRI to start.
