When you click on the lock icon it should have your name in the first field. If it doesn't something went wrong w/ the setup process. There is no default admin password as this would be a security risk. Since it seems that you just installed you may want to just wipe the install and reinstall. There are several posts on removing OS X if its not on its own partition.

Good luck, Sorry I can't be more helpful,

the password is case sensitive.. make sure you didn't have caps lock down or something
