No password or username or grub prompt on ubuntu mac user HELP


Hi, I have bought a Mac Laptop however it has a username and password which I don't know.

I've looked all over to see how I can overcome this lot's of people have said to enter at Grub prompt to take you to recovery, however I have no Grub prompt and Mac is not booting from cd rom.

Please could anyone help and offer advice I am new to all this and do not have a clue so please could you give your answers in basic lingo please. Thank's.
