Bug Description

I don't think I have a bug. I am ignorant to this operating system. I have lost my admin rights. Not sure how. How can I get my admin rights back.

my original log on was my name and no password

changed my name and added a password and lost all rights. Won't let me log on the original way

I really do not know what I am doing - very limited knowledge. I would appreciate any help possible in the language of Ubuntu for idiots. Thank you so much in advance.
