In brief: Knee pain
A possiblilty is a "bakers cyst".
If the is a bulge behind you knee, associated with discomfort, see your friendly orthopod.

In brief: Knee pain
This can be related to "wear and tear" arthritis, meniscal stress/tears but usually there is a history of trauma, or rarely, especially if there is a mass behind the knee related to a baker's cyst.
Stopping running for a short period to see if it resolves can be helpful information. Primary care and/or sports medicine is appropriate if you are a person who really wants to be able to keep running.
