Can you put on a strap ( pat strap, etc) to stop it flicking?
I suspect it is just a mechanical thing, and as long as it doesn't hurt, does it matter?- only thing is whether it will start to rub and get sore if you train more.
I had something very similar while marathon training. It didn't seem to impact my training and I also had regular sports massages, which tended to reduce it.
After the race my physio gave me some balancing exercises and core work (single leg etc) to correct the muscle imbalances she said were the cause. I guess even if it's not causing you a problem now, it might be worth determining the root cause so it doesn't turn into something more serious later.
