Knee pain while training.

I am pretty sure this is from overtraining as I just started but when I am riding on my trainer I get a distinct pain in my right knee that I never get in my left knee. The image shows the exact location of the pain. I have a bike fit scheduled for next week but does anyone have any ideas as to how I can adjust my setup now to better the chances of lowering the paint other then not riding? It is my right knee

Post 2 is all good information. Meanwhile, check your bike fit - here's my primer: How can I fitting my bike

Do these stretches every morning: IT Band pain (during ride)

While waiting for that to do some good, you can try taking 600 mg ibuprofen every 6 hours for a few days. If that fixes it, it was probably a swollen tendon sheath or bursa. If that doesn't fix it, and the above isn't working either, it's doctor time.

It's not overtraining in any case, but rather a minor injury caused by doing too much, too soon, without doing some attendant stretching and strength training.
Results matter

Pain in only one knee? Your saddle height might be too low or too high.

Grab a picture of you on the bike or trainer so we'll have better idea.
