ondemand sysadmin counts as user against license

I just purchased first month of ondemand Jira/Greenhopper. I wanted to start creating users, but dialogue box says, "There are currently 2 total user(s) set up in JIRA, of which 2 are active and count towards your license limit."

I look at Users, there is sysAdmin and me. Why is sysadmin counting against my license total? I removed it from Users group, still get the Notification above when I try to create users.
