In brief: See a physician
If you have swelling and heard a pop its a good idea to see a specialist to determine if you have had a injury or rupture to the achilles.

In brief: Achilles tendon
Sharp pain in the achilles tendon could be a pull in the muscle, or a tear in the achilles tendon.
This should be checked by an orthopedic surgeon before you do more lifting.
