By default the main user is the administrator, you can choose to remove the administrator for some users to restrict their use on the pc, eg installing programs. If you look in the user section as stalion says it will tell you if you are an administrator or user next to the name.

If you want to go to the main administrator account boot into safe mode and it will appear on the log in screen.
