If you have to ability and interest in these, I would say taking an AP would be good if you know you won't make a bad grade in it. Otherwise, it could severely drop our GPA if you fail. However, if you want to enter the medical field, I would advise taking some medical classes for the information and learning material, not the mention they could help you in college in other ways. Don't overdo it though.

If taking AP Comp Sci A/P or Music Theory is a goal of yours, then I would recommend taking those AP classes. I'm not sure how those classes would work as a semester, but definitely try them out if you are interested! However, the benefits of taking med classes are heavy with them giving you an intro into more tougher med-related classes. For example, a high school/intro in college anatomy course would be super useful for later medical classes. Overall, I would default onto medical classes if you are able to get a good grade in them and do not have a burning desire to take the AP classes.

APs will show rigger and if you get a good grade bring up your GPA.
