Slight snapping sensation in the back of my left knee(4 posts)

Recently I have been noticing this snapping sensation (like how a tendon snapping over a bone feeling) on my rides. It started about two weeks ago and is only in my left leg. It doesn't hurt, but it is uncomfortable. I can feel it and hear it if I listen hard. I can feel and hear it when I climb stairs. I think its right where my calf meets the knee but it's deep and I see no difference in either leg...any advice out there?

Stretches? Similar problems? Could it be the float (lack of) in the pedal? Or is just the the saddle to stem difference needs to be decreased to decrease tension on my hammys?

I really feel that it will eventually hurt cause it is getting more and more noticeable...
