In brief: See surgeon

Grinding noises in the knee alone is not a cause for concern but it it is a assoicaited with pain esp.
On straightening the knee out it could represent inflammation between the patella and femur (chondromalacia patella). Some acl repairs use part of the infra patella tendon. See your doc for exam and advice.
