The root note of a scale is its basic note where the whole scale is build on.
For example: the root note for C-major is: C, for A-minor: A, G#-major: G#...etc.
So...you see, that the scale's name already indicates the root-note.

That means, that the root note is the note, where your scale begins....and you mostly start there with your index finger - yeah.
