Should be part of your Python installation.
random.py should be in your /Lib folder

You may have created a test file random.py in your working directory. Rename that one to something like random_test.py so Python will look further.

Remember that Python will look in your working directory first and than in the Lib directory. Naming one of your files the same as a Python library file is a common mistake for beginners.

You sholdn't need to; it is part of the standard Python library. I gather you were unable to use it? What version of Python are you using? What exactly happens if you enter the following into the Python interpreter prompt?

import random

random.randint(0, 6)
