mysql is the database system
phpmyadmin is an app to help you manage the databases.
other management apps are sqlyog, ems, heidi all are free or have free versions

you create a mysql database but you can use phpmyadmin to create it.
there are better (free) apps available though ems, heidi or sqlyog to help you makeaedit and manage your mysql databases
