In brief: Many reasons
There could be many reasons for your knee pains ranging from traumatic or non-traumatic causes.
You don't need to have an injury to experience the pains. Common causes include sprain, strains, bursitis, tendinitis, early arthritis/wear/tear, ligament injury or meniscus tear. Rheumatologic diseases could also cause knee pains. See an orthopedic surgeon for clarity in diagnosis.

In brief: Arthritis/arthralgia
It depends on your medical history.
Your age, medical issues. Occupation, family history, medications etc. In addition a physical exam would be necessary to evaluate for potential infectious etiologies eg. Gout or psudogout. It could be as simple as degenerative arthritis or some thing more serious such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus or ather rheumatological disorders.
