Yes, it's the same password and ID you use with iTunes and the App Store - your Apple ID is likely the full gmail address that you used when setting up the phone. If you have forgotten your Apple ID or password, you can go to the iCloud website on a PC and you'll find some instructions at the bottom of the screen. Or, you can go directly to the relevant site at https://iforgot.apple.com/
