Indentation on knee. Gets deeper, resolves in morning. Tired, dizzy. Check up?

I'm a female and 22year old. I noticed a week ago I had a sudden indentation on my left knee cap that has not been there previously. The dimple is not painful but the indentation seems to get deeper by the end of the day and almost resolve in the morning. I'm normally fairly active workout 3 to 4 times a week but nothing where my knee would be over exerted. I haven't worked out in a week though because I haven't been feeling too well tired and dizzy and such so I don't think my exercise is related to it. Should I get this checked out? A recent knee dimple just seems silly to go to a doctor for.

Just wanted to know if you have on and off fever since the onset of these symptoms and are there any signs of inflammation around the knee? If you have these symptoms you need to consult a physician to get yourself checked for tuberculosis of the bone. Once it is ruled out, then you need to consult an orthopaedic surgeon for further evaluation.Hope i have answered your questions.
