Should I worry about a click in my hip?

A Click in One Hip

I am a 61-year-old male and I have been running, skiing, and hiking for over 30 years. I have recently developed a click—which I cannot feel, but merely hear—in one hip. It occurs when walking slowly on level floors. It does not happen when walking fast or going up or down stairs. It has not hindered my exercise. Should I have someone look at it?
