You'll need the doctor to do a thorough investigation.  It could be anything really, possibly overuse from too much running which can be unkind to knees, it could be a strain, a cyst, a tear of cartilage or ligament.  In the meantime you should Rest (no running), Ice (20 minutes every few hours with ice always wrapped in a cloth to protect the skin) and Elevate.

Good luck with the doctor on Monday - are you seeing a GP or a specialist (sports medicine, orthopaedics or similar)? :)
