phpMyAdmin is a shell for MySQL - ergo - for user(s) [created] and 'root' the passwords are saved in the database 'mysql' in the table 'user'.
PhpMyAdmin also has a 'special user', the PMA Control User. (its used by the phpMyAdmin program itself). Its username is 'pma' in the same table.
Summary: There really isn't "a" phpMyAdmin password. XAMMP comes out of the box with a 'root' MySQL user with no password (as do all fresh mySQL installs). The password you want for phpMyAdmin is probably the password for 'root'. If its a new install that is a null (none). If you set a password for 'root' but cannot recover it/remember what it was, you can use the 'resetroot.bat' in \xampp\mysql'.
