I have created an OpenID and using that in Stack Overflow. When I created that Id, I did not confirm the email address. So now I cannot reset my password, as I have forgotten it. Whom can I contact to reset my password and to confirm my emailId?

Moderators don't mess with your OpenID. Here's why.
You would have to contact your OpenID provider directly to get your password re-set on their end.
It is a very good idea to have multiple OpenID users associated with your account. For instance, I use MyOpenID and Google. If MyOpenID has a problem, I can still login.
If you can't get anywhere with your provider, just create a new registered account and flag for moderator attention to request a merge with the other account. Include the old OpenID username and SO user ID in the request to help expedite things. Make sure you associate a valid and reliable e-mail with the new account as well.
The request may have to go to SOIS staff, as we (moderators) can't 100% automatically verify that you owned the account so be patient for the process to complete.
