    You still need to login there, the localhost: console is where you type your user name and password. You can't create a user from there
    I don't know why you decided Gentoo when you are new to Linux ...

    When you are at the kde login screen, look for "Sessions", then see if there is a "Console" login or "Failsafe".
    Then you can login as root and from there you will be able to create a regular user.
    See this section of the Gentoo handbook.
