Hello, Medial plica cam cause pain and clicking sensation in your knee. If the pain is hindeeinhbyour activities ,itvis better to remove the plica by arthroscopic surgery. As far as your hamstring tightness is concerned, do stretching exercises for your hamstring and calf( videos available on Internet). Also get an x Ray of your spine done to rule out spondylolisthesis
