You first have to root your device in order to have root access.
I'd suggest you to have a look here.
Do check for supported devices here [as per devices, samsung galaxy core is supported. Do cross-check whether you own the same model or not]

  • I haven't done rooting in my device till now.In that case ,do you mean that none of the applications currently running in my mobile phone ,including anti virus is having root access ? What I mean is that, although I haven't done rooting in my mobile phone, how a privileged application like anti virus is running in my mobile ? Or is it running with limited privileges?

  • Rooting your device gives YOU administrative rights. Means once you root your device, you can explore your device's system files, tweak them, explore all you installed-apps data, install custom ROMs, etc. All the system files are hidden in UNROOTED device. You do not have permissions to access those files without root.
