Cinnamon lock screen not unlocking when password not set

I am having a problem with garuda-cinnamon. It seems to have set a password on it's own because when i installed i did not set a lock-screen password but when the computer sleeps the screen locks an asks me for a password? I wen to my account details and in the little password box there is a password that i did not set when i try to change it- it says i need the original password. So i'm confused if anyone knows how to fix this it would be appreciated.

Use your password that you login with. That should work.

Username - garuda
Password - garuda

I tried these passwords but did not work for some reason thank you for trying to help though i really appreciate it.
I did find a work around though.
if anyone is having the same problems try setting a password for your user
