Try doing non-impact training to keep phys up but let’s the knee heal, so rowing swimming cycling.

Stretch more often and try RICE with it on a night? Rest-Ice-Compress-Elevate (if I recall correctly).

If it still hurts on the day of your RMAD, try rearrange don’t go down and try give it your all and potentially injure your knee seriously, also you want to show you are ready for PRMC so a sore knee won’t help that.

Could be because of your hamstrings or lower leg muscles are tight . try foam roll the whole leg twice a day. If you don't have one , you could use something round like end of a baseball bat or a rolling pin. Also try to massage your back of a knee

I'm not qualified to diagnose or give medical advice so I'll just throw something into the mix for consideration:

It might just be a transient niggle which will fix itself if you rest it sufficiently. Rest from strenuous exercise is not a heresy; sometimes it is the most effective option. If the pain does not diminish after a week or so consider taking physiotherapy advice.

Regardless of injury, for many a foam roller gives longer term benefits. Worth considering. Best of luck.
