Right click the layer and select "duplicate layer" to copy and unlock it. It will show up as "Layer 1". There's no special significance of having a layer titled "Background" vs. "Layer 0". "Background" can refer to the bottom layer of any Photoshop file. See this post for more info on the significance of background vs. layer 0: Photoshop Background layer

Like that post mentions, it's a good idea to keep an unaltered copy of your photo as the background or Layer 0 file,just in case something happens during your photo manipulation.

Hope this helps!
