    We have only one Server SCCM 2012 R2, I need to know which discovery method I should use, and what site system roles I should install?

  • First You have to decide for what purposes You will use SCCM - deploy applications, software updates, operating systems, antivirus (Endpoint protection), etc.

    Then I would suggest to ready this article to now the options - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712282.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396#BKMK_Site_System_Roles  

    You will always need management point and distribution point. Then reporting point is necessary for viewing reports, software updates point to deploy updates. 

    I would also suggest to read some manuals before installing these site systems.

    Regarding discovery methods - there is also an article in Technet "Decide which discovery methods to use" https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712308.aspx#BKMK_DecideMethod 

    You will need System Discovery to push SCCM clients.
