First ascertain the cause for your back ache. Visit an orthopaedic surgeon and get the diagnosis done. It could be postural or it could a type of arthropathy that starts at young age for which some blood tests need to be done. Once a diagnosis is made then treatment could be planned accordingly.

its usually due to softening of the articular cartilage (lining cartilage) of the knee cap joint, which is not uncommon in females. This is usually due to harmonal inflence. Weight reduction and Quadriceps strengthening exercises help a lot. avoid sitting on the floor and squatting. If despite these pain persists then you should be examined by an ortho surgeon

If you r going to gym you have to carefully about it. Bcz if the sound is for ligament or capsular laxity then heavy weight lifting is harmful. You must go to a physical therapist who can assess detail the movement causes sound and what is the cause for it and according to that particular exercises. Are advised.
