What's your desktop?
MATE? Cinnamon? Xfce? LXDE? KDE?

Just in case, it's MATE:
Right-click the panel, hit "Add to panel" and choose "Clock" from the list.

In most Desktop Environments it will be this easy. In Cinnamon, however, you right click the panel and choose "Applets" and it is the Calendar applet that displays this info. You probably have to reset any custom time format you may have had.

In the future, when creating posts, I'd recommend looking at the System Info application to give us some more information about the system you are using.

Still no sign of a desktop environment. Please open System Info from the menu, and check there.
In case you are interested: 19.1 and Tessa are the same thing, and all Mint 19.x versions are based on Ubuntu 18.04. And Bionic is just another word for Ubuntu 18.04.

Boom, there it is. :-)
It looks like your Calendar applet got removed from the panel somehow; open the Applets settings window, and re-add it, as advised by squiggles3 and as shown below.

I wasn't sure about what it's like on the other DE's, that's why I, as an example, was referring only to mine, which is MATE.
