In brief: Plica band

Plica is a synovial infolding that can become pathological and cause pain .
Supra patellar means above the knee cap. Femoral attachment is where it attaches to the thigh.

In brief: Inflammation.

It could mean that it is inflammed.
It sounds like that finding may have come from an MRI report. See an orthopedic knee surgeon, who can determine the source of discomfort.
