why would you be "unable to further with the client job"?

 

All payments are subject to a 5 day security period. That has absolutely nothing to do with your ability to proceed with the job. Payments in "pending" are approved by the client. There is absolutely nothing stopping you from proceeding with anything.

You've been paid. Upwork will release the funds to you 5 days after they successfully charged the client for it.

So, should I tell the client to hold on or I can still use the bonus like that

I believe Petra already answered your question. The client has paid you. Upwork holds the funds for 5 days until it's been verified that the charge was successful. You can continue working with the client.
