    Yes, it's grammatical. The meaning depends on the context. You need more in the sentence. By itself, it means what it says - You've had a fever.
    When did you have the fever? Do you still have it? What is the reason for communicating this? All these things will give the sentence a specific meaning.

    Re: have had

    Welcome to the forum.

    See: fever - definition of fever by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    As an NES but not a teacher, I would have no problem with the sentence as written.
    It's similar to "I have had many (Thai) dictionaries in my time, but never used them" - my wife translates for me!

    Re: have had

    As Raymott says, you need more to the sentence, such as "I have had a fever and a rash, but I'm OK now".

    Now that you have an answer to your question, please note my corrections to your spelling. You also failed to end your question with a question mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
