Do you drink a lot of caffine?
Water?
Are you eating a low meat or low fat diet?

Is this all of your joints or just knees? It's fairly normal to have popping in joints, but if it's with every movement that could be a sign of a problem. If it's just your knees you may be getting excess fluid in the joint due to wear or an injury. How old are you? I understand this can also be a warning of osteoarthritis. If it gets worse or isn't going away you probably want to speak with an orthopedist.

There a lot of theories as to why joints pop, the most common being the release of gas bubbles within the synovial fluid of joints....

Snapping tendons or ligaments can also cause a popping sound as can degenerative changes in the cartilage (arthritis)

Bottom line, if the only symptom you have is popping and it doesn't cause pain then there is no reason for concern.
