No, that's a scam. Don't call that number.

See: https://blog.malwarebytes.org/fraud-scam/2014/11/psa-tech-support-scams-pop-ups-on-the-rise/

You can use the Task Manager to close your browser: How to Use the New Task Manager in Windows 8 or 10

After a reboot  the pop-up should be gone.

If not, please follow the steps provided here: Remove Tech Support Scam pop-up (Call For Support Scam)
