The notifications indicate people who are friends with you on Facebook. If you used "Sign in with Facebook" option or used the e-mail address to sign up on Instagram that you used to sign up for Facebook too. Instagram is owned by Facebook, so they can know.

I had the same problem few weeks ago and i figured two ways to get over it. This option is for people who have a different phone in handy. You just have to login to your instagram using a different phone(and the irony is that it allows you to login there). Then you link your instagram with facebook. Logout from instagram and then log back in to instagram ...
