In brief: Dislocated patella?
Knee popping, pain extending from knee, and 'top outside of knee' sounds like a dislocated knee cap; it may spontaneously relocate, but there may be a ligament problem which holds the knee cap to the knee, which is why the 'pop'.

In brief: Complex
I am a functional movement specialist.
The causes of knee cap pain are complex and we review some in the YouTube video listed. The causes will often not show up in a class knee exam or imaging. A functional exam in addition to classical is recommended. https://youtu.be/sVub-q5Wkqw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43Nh5aYwFnA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6SXiDCMP3E Good luck and see someone
