The password may be nothing. So just put nothing in it and hit enter. You can change the password in your system preferences under accounts. If nothing is the password, you can always boot from your OS X disk and in the utilities menu bar, reset the password to whatever you want.

Sorry, but the way you spell and type it's doubtful any password would do you any good.
