Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.
It sounds like a politeal muscle strain which lies behind the knee or a posterior ligament injury due to unnoticed wrong movement. I would recommend you to take tablet ibuprofen twice a day for 5 days and apply capsaicin cream with cold compresses over the area. Massage gently with any oil daily and use knee brace. If it does not improve in couple of days then do see an orthopedic for thorough evaluation and imaging to rule out anything serious.

Thanks for the reply.
Clicking is most likely due to ligament injury most commonly posterior cruciate which is diagnosed mostly on clinical examination and an MRI by an orthopedic. I would recommend you to get a consultation from specialist if it is not improving by now.
Yes, crutches can help as they can provide rest to the affected knee and related muscles for some days. Apply capsaicin cream as well.
