sudden sharp pain in knee

I have always been in good shape and never had health issues.  Recently I have noticed an occasional pain in my right knee (from looking at diagrams I think it may be my lateral collateral ligament?) on the outside below my kneecap.  It started with a slight pain when going up a few flights of stairs.  I have also started having instances where I have felt as though my knee were about to give way, though it hasn't at this point.  I was not worried until today I had two instances when I was squatting down and felt a very sharp pain shooting through my knee and it was very painful to move back into a straight position.  However, I am having no issues now with it straight or bent slightly while sitting.  Any idea what the issue may be?  Please respond only if you are knowledgeable on the subject.
