Annoying Click

Hi guys, just a quick question. My bike has a pretty annoying clicking problem lately. When my right foot is at the bottom of the downstroke there are 3 small clicks very close to eachother. When I am off of the bike and try to make the sound, it doesn't make it. Only when I'm on the bike. What do I need to do to fix this? Thanks for the help.

Make sure the pedal threads are greased that both crankarm bolts are tight and chainring bolts are tight. Make sure the crank bearings are tight, grab the arms and see if there is any play or movement side to side or up and down.
