but if I delete user, I could lose my connection

You don't have the password is fine since it is saved in the RDP session, I hope that you have access to your server, once you logged in, type lusrmgr.msc and select the user you want to change password and right click and select the option set password and supply your new password, here it dont ask the old credentials.
