Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. The picture attached looks normal and nothing much to worry about.
It could be the ligament sprain (bursitis).My suggestion for you would be-
1. Ice fomentation, avoid excessive knee bending and sitting on floor for few days.
2. You may have Ibuprofen for few days along with local pain killer gel application.
Take care
