Since you have a Windows phone, you Windows Live Account would be whatever email you set up on the device to activate it. If you can't sign in and are using the correct details then access the Microsoft email on the PC and see if you have triggered 2 Step Verification. This would prevent you from signing in. A new account also needs to go through a verification process. Logging in on the PC will be able to tell you if you need to complete that. Beyond these tips, contact Microsoft directly through their Support Module.
