In brief: Hip Derotation

As we develop, soft tissue changes, referred to as "version" are imposedo on the leg, as well as bony changes referred to as "torsion".
Usually, intoeing from the hip (with the kneecap turned in as well) are due to a failure of femoral retrotorsion, which results in a position of antetorsion, or internal rotation of the leg. You may benefit from an orthotic called a "gait plate".

In brief: See an orthopedist

I am most concerned with the hip popping.
Popping is never good. The fact your knee points inward can occur because you can be "pigeon toed" or have internal tibial or femoral rotation. You are trying to eliminate this by compensating. See your doc for possible solutions and to exam your hip before you tear your labrum.
