Why doesn't this work?
#1
import time
file = open("login.txt","r")
TrueUsername = file.readline(1)
TruePassword = file.readline(2)
print("Log in")
time.sleep(0.5)
Username1 = input("Username:")
Password1 = input("Password:")

if Username1 == TrueUsername and Password1 == TruePassword:
    print("Welcome.")   
else:
    print("Try again.")
file.close()
---Whenever I write the correct password and username on the .txt file it prints "Try again."

you should use configparser.

WAY easier :)

If you print your variables, you will find that the variables created by readline() contain a newline at the end, and the variables created by input do not, so they will never be equal. https://www.tutorialspoint.com/python/file_readline.htm

Hence, going off woooee's comment, you need to split the readline to remove the newline.
Try something like: TrueUsername = file.readline(1).split('\n')[0]
If ^ doesn't work, then do:
TrueUsername = file.readline(1).split('\n')
if Username1 == TrueUsername[0]
