If you started sqlplus without any arguments, it would be a username and password for a database on the same machine, which is probably not what you want.
You should read up on how to use sqlplus: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e16604/ch_three.htm
Ask your database administrator for the correct database, username and password.
