I felt pressure in my throat and pressed down on it slightly with my fingers. I heard a crackling sound and my adams apple moved.. What happened?

In brief: Thyroid cartilage

Your trachea (windpipe) and your adam's apple (laryngeal prominence of the thyroid cartilage) have some amount of movement normally.
Generally not a problem.
