I am new to this forum and windows  phone development too.

Is there a way to uniquely identify the user of the Application. I mean, I don't want to show user a login dialog even for first time. I just want to know who launched in to the app. Is there a way I can know the Microsoft account of the user, I am assuming that would be sufficient to uniquely Identify the App user.

Or please suggest any other way to implement this.

The only user specific identifier available is the anonymous ID  (ANID & ANID2) available from UserExtendedProperties class:

As the name implies the value is anonymous but will be unique from ID of a different Microsoft account.
