Hello, cracking of knuckles is very common. It involves that you bend your joint  either ways in order for it to crack. If it becomes a habit then you will try to crack it often and may cause excessive load/pressure on the joint and this might cause damage to your ligaments and capsule around the joint. As they say, anything in excess is not good !
