I'm assuming you're talking about Fedora Workstation. You'll be prompted to create a user account when you boot into the system for the first time.

Fedora no longer sets a password on the root account by default; your new user account will be added to the sudo'ers group. You can run sudo su, authenticate with your user's password, and then set a root password by runningpasswd.
