Crunching sound in knee, tenderness. Overuse?

Ive had a crunching sound in my left knee for a few weeks now. I work out 6 days a week and do hard cardio 3 days a week. It didnt hurt at first but now the inner and outer sides of my knee feel tender. It hurts somewhat when bent but mostly tender to the touch. Im thinking overuse?? I have no prior injury or pain in my knees.
