So I understand that your new Kindle is prompting you for a password.
If your new Kindle is going through the registration process, then it should prompt you for the password twice. In which case, you are to enter your own password, the one you choose
, twice (...to make sure there is no problem with accidental mistakes in typing, both entries of the password are compared to make sure they both match.)
Have you already gone through the registry process with this Kindle? if you haven't, and if it is asking you for a password before you can do *anything* with it, then it must have been registered for a password already. In which case, it must have been a returned item, since new Kindles are not supposed to be registered. You can de-register it from whatever account it is registered to, then register it again to your own account, in that case.

(And - a suppositious case - *if* you did not buy it from Amazon, it's bootleg and you were badly treated as a result. It might have been a stolen Kindle - they are easy to steal, unfortunately. In which case, reporting it to Amazon is the right thing to do! even if you cannot get a refund, you would at least enable the person it was stolen from to get it back.)
