You need to log in as root and use the password that you set for root. As soon as you log in, you can create new acount. Root is the admin account for the linux system, has the power to do anything.

So log in as:

Username: root
Password: whatever you entered when you installed and they asked for root or main password.

If you don't have that password, I think you're screwed, and you'll probably have to reinstall.
