I sit on my feet a lot with knees bent under me. Can this cause blood clot in leg?

Technically. It can. The same way if you bend a hose the water won't come out. I recently had a patient who used a knee scooter, after the second day she complained of pain and after an ultrasound she was positive for a clot. I would not recommend sitting like that for long periods of time.

Probably not. Generally, clots occur because you have 1) a blood condition that promotes clotting or 2) you've been traveling or had a medical problem and were immobile for a long time. If your leg isn't swollen or red, it's probably not a clot. Leg pain can be due to many things. Clots don't make any noise. But if you're concerned see your doctor, who might order an ultrasound if indicated by your exam.
