If you don't know then it isn't on. You can Google 2 factor authentication and it should take you to the Google help page on setting this up. EVERYONE should use this.  The Google authenticator app for iPhone or android is worth it.

On the original question,  put in a help ticket to the Google helpdesk and all that they reset your password.
