please visit your dentist & also get an xray done to check if there's any major issue with the jaw joint. please don't take this lightly.  you might require a small appliance to relieve you of the pain.

Clicking will be due to early stages of joint problem. The problems might be improper arrangement of teeth, impacted wisdom tooth which are partially erupted, supraeruption of opposite teeth in the region of missing teeth. Visit a dentist for precautionary appliance. If not you might suffer due to extreme pain at  later stages of life
