Macbook pro has no administrator account.

I recently bought a2nd hand (ten yr,old) macbook Pro. the seller had wiped his stuff of course and set up a Standard user. This is fine until I want to change any settings when administrator's rights are needed! As a standard user I cannot set up or change a user's rights and so I am stuck unable to even install some updates. How to overcome this?
