I am 5'8" and 240 lbs I ran a mile

Patient : I am 5'8" and 240 lbs. I ran a mile yesterday ( first time in years ). This morning I woke up with pain and swelling. The knee is popping when I bend it. The inside of the kneecap feels full. My knee also feels stiff. I am unable to straighten my knee out completely. Also when I squat down ( to pick something up ) the pain is incredible and my knee feels so stiff I worry if I could get back up. Should I seek emergency treatment as it's 9:30 on a Friday night?
