When you installed Ubuntu, you specified a username and password for your Ubuntu system. Depending on what you made the password to be, it may or may not be the same as the password you use for Windows or any other system.

If you do not remember the password you created when you installed Ubuntu, you can reset it to something else: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword
