When I open terminal the following command is already present

georgihockaday@ubuntu:~$

Is this correct? Have tried typing in my user password followed by enter and receiver error message "bash: <password> command not found.

yes, your terminal display is correct. You just enter any "proper" command after that display. The only time you will be asked for your password is if you are trying to do a command as root ie: sudo or gksu.
