Whenever you approach a creature, your Stealth skill is automatically checked to determine whether the creature notices you. In addition to your Stealth skill value, other factors affect your chance of successfully avoiding the creature's notice, including your movement speed (moving more slowly - i.e. by crouching, sneaking, or walking instead of running - increases your chance of successful Stealth skill checks), ambient light, and the creature's perception.
