Hi there!

 

I recommend you look at this article here.

 

According to the article, 

"Your username is designed to identify you on Spotify, so it’s not possible to change it. You can always check your username on your account page. But you don’t need to remember it to log in, just use your email address and password, or Facebook

 

During the signup you will get to create a profile name that’s displayed in the app. You can enter your preferred display name in the "What should we call you?" field. 

A display name replaces the username where it shows on your profile, app, playlists, and Friend Activity. "

 

So, you cannot change your username, (the jumbled mix of letters and numbers)

 

As for deleting your account, I think this article should help. 

Because you have 7 days to change your mind, you probably cannot make anoher account with the same email within a week of your account deletion.

 

Hope this helps!
