Several comments that might help you anyway, off-topic though they
are.  The easiest is to right click on gnome-terminal to bring up the
application menu and select Show Menubar again.  Another is that F11
is the normal keyboard shortcut to toggle fullscreen mode in GNOME
applications and is accessible even when the menubar has been turned
