Front of knee pain

Hi, the other day I was briskly walking (I do this about four days per week for about two hours) and the front of my knee, to the top right of my kneecap started to really hurt. When I walk up or down the stairs it seems to hurt the most, but if I keep walking on it the pain gradually decreases. It is a bit sore to touch, and I can see a faint bruise. It doesn’t hurt to sit with my knee bent, and so I am not sure if it is Runner’s Knee. Does anyone know what the problem could be, and have any tips on solving it? I also run about twice a week. Thanks for any advice.
