This is fairly common if the computer is that new and has never been backed up before.

Do you remember the original password ***** you set up when you got the machine?

That is an automated service that is sent by the website, I would not be able to connect.

The password ***** need to enter is going to be the one you originally used to set up your Microsoft Account.
