I injured my wrist and something made a snap sound. Now there is (i think) a joint sticking out. When I move my wrist something pops. Hurts. Advice?

In brief: Needs medical eval.
Based on your description, you need to be evaluated immediately by either your primary care doc, an orthopedists or an er/urgent care center. It may be something minor but needs evaluation by a doc and at least an xray.
In the meantime, ice, elevate, and immobilize with splint, etc.

You may have broken a bone, tore a ligament or dislocated a bone.
This may need an x-ray and could require surgery.
