Everytime I try to Install the Adobe Flash Player on my new mac, it asks me for my Name and Password.

My Mac Book Air is new so I haven't set a password yet but it knows my name.

Does anyone know If It has a default password or something like that?

Macs DON'T come with a pre-loaded account or password. You MUST set these up when you first boot into OSX.  You can choose not to use a password, and in some cases, you can just leave it blank when installing software or updates, but it's VERY UNSAFE to do so. Since OS10.7, OS X has "Gatekeeper" which prevents installations without a password from an admin account.  See: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS5282
