Question 1 - Could be a clot - I don't don't, get it checked.
Question 2 - I recommend what you suggested and see someone.

Cheers.

Definitely get it checked.
It sounds like Rec Fem to me..

A good osteo should pick up pelvic alignment

strong enough?

I agree with this.

The actual pain you're describing sounds like quad tendon tendonitis. Tight rec fem attaches to the patella at the quad tendon and if tight will overload the tendon = pain.

This is probably a result of poor squatting technique or poor pelvic alignment.

Sitting back and using your hips more when you squat will take the tension off your quads. Foam roll the shit out of your rec fem every day. Lay off front squats and high bar squats if you're doing them - stick to low bar and/or box squats until it feels a bit better.

Don't forget to add in lots of glute activation drills to get that balance right faster. i.e. pelvic alignment and less tightness
