You should make an install script for your plugin.

An optional script file (PHP code that is run before, during and/or after installation, uninstallation and upgrading) can be defined using a element. This file should contain a class named "IntallerScript" where is the name of your extension (e.g. com_componentname, mod_modulename, etc.). Plugins requires to state the group (e.g. plgsystempluginname).

See more info about it in the Script file section of Manifest files doc.
