You don't need 2 users unless you want to.

If you only want one user then that user is a regular user until they 
use sudo then their password has the power of admin.

If you then add another user, that password does not allow them to use 
sudo unless you specifically allow it by placing them in the admin group 
or by modifiying the sudoers file.
