Default Root problem

Hi . i was running cm 11 nightly and I wanted to get back to the stock ROM so I backed up everything and it went well . after I got back to 4.4 stock I updated it to 4.4.2 but after the update the recovery was deleted so I used fastboot and flashed it again . when I rebooted it didn't ask me if I would like to install super su so I thought I was already rooted and everything was ok . but I dont have root premmission and I Dont know how to fix it . help please

You need to flash a rom or a root zip.

There's a rooting / unlocking bootloader sticky thread in general
