Phone asking for emergency password or else for factory reset?

While my phone was in pocket, its screen was active and hence due to movements the phone accepted multiple login attempts. When I took out the phone it asked for emergency password.

Is there a way to unlock my screen without losing my data?

I have forgotten my alternate password after the fingerprint scanner didn't work. I have one try left on my password or I will lose all my data..
