In brief: Knee pops

Time to get it checked out with your orthopaedist.
Any swelling involved? Does it collapse? Getting worse? Where is the pain if you have any?

In brief: Instability

First you need to figure out if it's your kneecap or your shinbone(tibia) shifting on your thigh bone (femur).
Patellar instability can be initially treated with pt and a brace. Knees with a torn anterior cruciate ligament will need surgery to stabilize.
