In brief: Too many to answer!

Many problems can cause the sensation of stiffness, including osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis, capsulitis of the hip joint (like frozen shoulder-only at the hip), piriformis muscle issues and on and on.
You need to see a practitioner who can start an appropriate evaluation. Your problem might seem mild now, but it might gget worse if not diagnosed and treated.
