Is the pain worse when you go up or down stairs?
It could be Runners Knee, the 4 main reasons for this developing are
1. A slowed vastus medialis/lateralis response time
2. A decrease in explosive strength
3. A shortened quadriceps
4. A hypermobile patella
Pain and crepitus might also be observed in any squatting manoeuvre.
