Since your Pi does not have a WiFi connection. It does not know the password needed to connect to your router.
There are a few things you can try:
your issue is this? "my router doesn't have any sticker or anything that tells me my password"
what you CAN do is log into your router's web interface and
a) view the current wifi settings including password or if not visible then
b) reset the password.
This involves knowing the router's IP address, which is also the "gateway" IP address (usually.) it might be 192.168.1.1 or 10.0.0.1 perhaps. This will get you started old bean!
The login details are often name: admin password: admin
