Go for an xray of the knee. This may be due to ligament injury and a mri may be required if xray is normal. Meanwhile take painkillers and anti inflammatory drugs for relief. Also apply kneelet to restrict movement.

Check your hemoglobin level. If it is low follow iron rich diet. If hemoglobin is at level then check your knee position. If there is more backward bend in any one of the knee or both do regular exercise to strengthen hamstring muscle (you may find in net). If you regularly play in which you jump a lot ; please use knee cap.
