    Is there a young problem with my bottom bracket?

    Everytime i pedal theres some kind of slightly dull clicking sound; and im really suspicious its the bottom bracket or whatever bearing holds the pedals. Is there a problem with the bottom bracket? Did something like a little dirt make its way into there??
    Heres a video of it https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Nto...w?usp=drivesdk

    is it hitting the kickstand ? sounds seems to be when pedal passes
    by kickstand

    if not,

    then yes.. something is odd inside the bottom bracket

    not a pedal.

    Well it still turns very smoothly and with no problem but it just makes that sound. Its not hitting anything. So im not completely sure its the bottom bracket. Maybe its some other component in the crankset?
