When you call in sick, If you have a heavy cold, you take the sick leave. However, when you are completely recovered and your GP gives you a clean bill of health, can I say that one takes the medical discharge? Thanks for your help.

No, a medical discharge is being released from the army due to medical disability.  The situation you describe is called "a clean bill of health",  https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/a+clean+bill+of+health
 
There is also something in the UK called a fit note. https://www.ccohs.ca/oshanswers/psychosocial/fit_to_work.html

Hi,
I used to work in the food industry and the term we used in these cases was a clearance
Not sure if that applies to all jobs

It is common here to say that one has been released by the doctor to return to work. You receive a "Physician´s Release".

Here is a sample of a release form https://www.broomfield.org/DocumentCenter/View/2202
