I began running after having rested for 6 weeks because of a back fracture. I felt a pain under my knee cap. What could it be?

In brief: CLASSIC PAIN

Location for joggers knee.
You are likely compensating on your footing for your back issues. I suggest you back off, start with walking, running for 1 minute, walking for 2 minutes but please stretch well and maybe re evaluate your shoes...
