Strain in my knee during squats

Does anyone else have this issue. It all started when I did the hang squat clean. I dont know if I went too low but both knees popped really loud like my knuckles but it did not hurt. It is only in my left knee and it feels like a ligament or something inside the right part of my knee cap. If I turn my foot to the left or right I can feel it as well. Again no issues in my right knee. Hard for me to explain. But since then I feel like my knee has to pop like a knuckle a lot more and when I bend it completely I can feel it stretching. Is this bad? It doesnt really hurt just kinda annoying more than anything.

Re: Strain in my knee during squats

I don't think it should be a problem or anything to worry about. My knees pop when I kneel down or bend my leg fully. Apparently the pop noise when cracking any joint is fluid doing something or other in there (that's the technical explanation!) but it is not harmful. However for some reason once joints start popping, I have noticed they tend to keep popping. Not sure if this is any help at all, but I don't think you have anything to worry about
