Default Inner knee discomfort - stance width, angle or just beginner soreness?

Hi all,
Beginner snowboarder here. Have been using rentals the first few times and now have my own gear. Have a question about solving a slight knee pain issue.

My stats:
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 150ish lbs
Board: Rossi Templar 155 (stance width one notch narrower than ref width of 21.7", so probably around 20")
Boots: K2 Raider (2014)
Bindings: K2 Formula (2013) at +18/-9

I've gone out twice on my own gear and both times noticed a slight discomfort during and after the riding. Nothing that cripples me or prevents more riding but fairly noticeable.

What adjustments would you try first for this area of discomfort? I would describe it as being on the inner sides of both knee caps.

I feel like the stance width is correct for my body but the angles could be off.

Or is it just a matter of getting used to the movements?
