pain behind knee

I am 43 and I noticed 2 weeks ago after walking 2 miles (fast paced) that I had a pain behind my right knee. Over the past week the pain did start to subside but because I am stubborn I began walking again and the pain came back. I did have knee surgery on my left knee but that was 22 years ago. I do not have any swelling, redness and my leg is not warm to touch which makes me feel confident that it is not a blood clot but I have decided to take a 81mg baby aspirin daily just to be safe. Unfortunately I am between jobs and my new health insurance will not start until July so I am hoping to figure out what is wrong on my own. Would simple warmups have helped prevent this pain???

Thank you
