You can't get the password.
The method of getting the curretly logged in userid depends on the context.
Is this a winforms app or an asp.net app ?
ASP.NET
WindowsIdentity Identity = (WindowsIdentity)HttpContext.Current.User.Identity;

Otherwise, try :

WindowsIdentity Identity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();

Then you can do Identity.Name to get the username.

OK. Try :

WindowsIdentity Identity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();
