Link repository, what password?

I'm trying out Bitbucket for the first time. Currently I'm following a tutorial for Django, but the info seem to a bit outdated. So I'm following this tutorial as an example.

So I got my project and git. Now I like to backup my project on Bitbucket. I've setup a account on Bitbucket (by linking my gmail account) and created my first repository. 

After cloning my repository inside the terminal (Linux) I need to enter a password. I'm not sure, but this is the password I use to login to my Bitbucket account, right? Or is there some secret git password I need to enter. I also created and tried the app passwords on Bitbucket, but I'm not sure if it's meant to link the repository. 

Right know I'm getting the error:

remote: Too many invalid password attempts. Log in at to restore access.
fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 403

If I go to the, but I'm not sure what I have to do to fix the mess I made

Hi Everlong 

This is what I found !!!

"8. Enter your Bitbucket password when the terminal asks for it. If you created an account by linking to Google, use your password for that account."

Linking the latest document for your reference. Hope this helps.
