    You can remove them from being a user. Go to My Site > Manage > People > Team and you can delete them there. If you need further help go to https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

    @fernandodiaz0013 Can you reveal the address of the site you need help with. The information above may or may not assist you depending where your site is hosted. Here at WordPress.com the owner/admin would have to invite someone. If your site is hosted elsewhere and using the wordpress installation you may just have a setting enabled to invite guests to your site or it may be that your site might have security issues that need addressing.

    when I click on My Site at the top left hand corner I get a reply that says you have not got a wordpress site yet , which is confusing

    That’s because you’re posting from a WordPress.com account. This forum you’re currently posting into assists with free sites hosted at WordPress.com. As your site isn’t hosted on WordPress.com servers staff here have no access to it. If your host doesn’t offer support you’ll need to register an account and ask for advice at the correct support forum:
