In brief: Check it out

This sounds concerning.
It may be indicative of a malunion or nonunion. Get an exam and an x-ray is likely.

In brief: Maybe

The sound should not be associated with pain, however; and the snap should not cause locking of the finger in a straight or bent position.
Go back to your doctor for specific answers if you have these other complains.
