By default, mysql installs with user root , and no password.
Running the instance config wizard (on Windows) the first time, you are prompted for a password for root. After that, you have to use the password which was used at the first running.

There is section in the Reference manual on how to reset the root password if you don't know what it is.

Good luck.
