In brief: Pain, swelling

Usually one has had an injury with a twisting mechanism you will typically be unable or have difficulty weightbearing.
Usually there is a large knee effusion making knee flexion difficult.. Obviously there would be fracture site pain of a considerable amount.

In brief: Knee pain

The tibial plateau is the upper portion of the tibia, so the primary symptom would be pain just below the knee.
At your age, a traumatic event would be expected to cause the fracture. These fractures are usually visible on a simple x-ray.
