The font sizes on the letters appear to be the default size.

If you want to make them bigger or smaller you would edit your stylesheet.  

Keep in mind that the stylesheet controlling the below are in bootstrap.css.  You really don't want to modify that.  You need to "override" the style on a separate stylesheet that comes "after" bootstrap.css.  

The file you edit will depend on who set up your template.   For example, it might be named "custom.css".    

The reason why you don't want to edit bootstrap.css is because in a joomla update the bootstrap.css stylesheet could be overwritten.  Also bootstrap.css is the foundation of your responsive site for various reasons should never be modified.

Below is the css in the bootstrap.css that controls the login form text size, margins, etc.

div.k2LoginBlock fieldset.input p label {
    display: block;
}
label {
    display: block;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
}
label, input, button, select, textarea {
    font-size: 14px;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 20px;
}

One way to determine which style sheet is used to override the bootstrap.css style is to check with the company you got your template from.  They will have the name of the stylesheet you need to modify or create.

If you can't get the name of the stylesheet from them (but you should be able to) come back here an I'll tell you a workaround.

You edit your stylesheet in Joomla's Template Manager.
