In brief: Maybe nothing
Common - check with your technique on your lunges- wrong technique can hurt your knee.
Also, you may already have some chondromalacia under your knee cap and that can be painful with lunges. if it persists, see an ortho knee specialist

Internal Medicine
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.
