Pain in the knee, cyst under the skin on the knee. Do I need to go for MRI?

hey there i had knee pain for few days (getting better now) after running. after the first two days of pain on the front part of the right knee, i noticed a little bump like a cyst under the skin. now the pain is much better but the cyst is there. do you think the cyst is related to possible injury? shall i look for MRI or x-rays? the knee is good now although i hear some grinding noises when i bend the leg.
