What us your age and weight ? If more then 45 then a lot of times due to overweight the knee cap and the joints space gets reduced and causes a lot friction causing pain. It is called an osteoarthritis.
Also an another possibility is of a ligament injury which can occur due to an unusual twist or turn of the joints.
Even bursitis below the knee cap will cause a lot of pain and inflammation
So get a xray of the knee joint AP and lateral and see an orthopedician
