at your age, you can have early arthritis inflammation of your knee joints which can cause pain when you sit down or stand up or walk up and down the strains

joint infections in both knees would be unlikely and you would have fever most likely

gout sometimes is possible in the knees

tendonitis or buriitis are also possible in the knees as well

osteoarthritis wearing down of cartilage in the knees often can cause pain in the knees when you stand up or sit down

you might need anti-inflammatories to help your knees.

you should get knee xrays as well

do you have a doctor you can see who can do some testing for your knees?
