Cracking sound from knee during certain position or movement is more suggestive of ligament or meniscus injury.

So, it is better to consult orthopedic doctor and get done clinical examination, x-ray and MRI of affected knee joint. If all these are normal, then no need to worry for any major knee injury.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
