In brief: Depends
It depends on your age and level of activity.
As you get older, arthritis is a common cause of knee pain while in younger population, trauma/strain remains a leading cause of knee pain.

In brief: Patellar pain.
Soreness around the kneecap (patellar pain), is the most common cause of soreness at the knee joint.
There can also be tendinitis above or below the kneecap.
