This question already has an answer here:

I just got my Raspberry pi and I was setting up the timezone and some other things, and when it restarted it wanted a login and password that I do not know. Is there any way to reset it? I did go into boot and click on the first command on accident, Could that be it?

Assuming you are running Raspbian. The username is pi and the password is raspberry.

    ...and if you are not used to *nix operating systems note that no characters will be displayed as you type in the password. – joan Jan 7 '16 at 9:57
