Try Username: root
but leave the Password: empty - no password has been set yet.
Click on Go
These details are included in the readme_en.txt file in the xampp installation folder.
To set a password for phpMyAdmin/MySQL click on the Security link in http://localhost/xampp/
Welcome Page and follow the link.
BTW, change from Yes
at the Set a random password for the phpMyAdmin user 'pma':
in the Security page or you may get unexplainable errors.
If you think you may forget the password for user root then tick the box above(File: C:\xampp\security\mysqlrootpasswd.txt)
and it will save the password in a plain text file in the above folder if that is your default installation folder.
